Building Resilience into Catchments
Through the Building Resilience into Catchments(BRICs) project further developments are being made to create an enterprise capable of running a nutrient based trading scheme. BRICs is a 3 year(2017-2019), £600,000+ project, led by the Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum and PLANED. It is funded under the Welsh Government’s Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme Sustainable Management Scheme (SMS) which aims to support activities that will improve the management of Wales’ natural resources, and in doing so contribute to the well-being of our rural communities. BRICs is a combination of on the ground actions to improve water quality with the creation of a nutrient trading scheme which will allow the economy of Pembrokeshire to grow while improving the natural environment.
