Research Programme 1
To establish an approach that integrates the scientific, social, cultural and economic evidence needed for an effective NITROGEN POLICY ARENA. This requires evaluation of the current (inter-) governmental policy landscape, developing future visions and scenarios, considering options for N management, while recognizing the role of environmental diplomacy. Scenarios will link the key drivers (crop-livestock options, food choice, waste reduction, technological 'circular economy' approaches). The hub will develop guidance and e-tools to aid policymakers and practitioners.

- That a joined-up approach to assessing the benefits of better nitrogen management will strengthen the ‘gravity of common cause’, so contributing to overcoming the barriers.
- That progress in co-developing solutions with key actors will be strengthened by improving understanding between weakly linked actor groups (policy, farmers, civil society, business.)
