The Environment Agency has developed an action plan and associated governance arrangements to take forward the advice and recommendations highlighted in the recent diffuse pollution report.

The actions focus on reviewing and improving approaches to evidence, communication and measures in line with NAO recommendations. Actions include joint work with DEFRA, Natural England and other third parties, and link to the ‘Catchment Management Approach’ to River Basin Planning which was announced on 23 March 2011.
