Land management and water quality are inextricably linked. This relationship needs to be recognised and understood if water resources are to be adequately protected and, where necessary improved in quality. The nature of the relationships, together with management options to achieve water quality benefits is a complex one, involving variations in geography, scale and time, but clearly offers opportunities for achievement of multiple environmental and socio-economic objectives. The challenge will be to identify, quantify and deliver these benefits on the ground.
