The aim of the Dŵr Uisce project is to improve the long-term sustainability of water supply, treatment and end-use in Ireland and Wales through the development of a number of new innovative technology platforms; undertaking economic and environmental impact assessments, and developing policy and best practice guidelines to facilitate the implementation of integrated low-carbon and smart energy solutions for the water sector.
The Sustainable Intensification Platform
The work on sustainable intensification of upland sheep production being conducted at Henfaes Research Centre is part of a bigger project looking at how to increase food production in a way that is less damaging on the environment.
Extreme Flooding Research Project
The UK witnessed unusually severe flooding in the winters of 2012-2013 and 2013-2014, with many areas across the UK remaining underwater for almost three months. We have monitored the recovery of agricultural soils in Somerset and Worcestershire every month since the flood waters receded, conducted several laboratory studies to investigate the chemical and physical changes that occur in the soil during and shortly after an extreme flooding and are conducting a field experiment to determine what management practices are best for repairing flood damage to soils.
The CEFN Conwy Project
The CEFN Conwy project is designed to enhance the technical knowledge and environmental management skills of farmers in rural Conwy.
The Boreal Nitrogen Gap project
The Boreal Nitrogen Gap project aims to explain the size, fate and impacts of biological nitrogen fixation in forest ecosystems of northern Fennoscandia.

Conservation at Bangor
The research of conservation scientists and students at Bangor University span the breadth of the discipline from the ecology of threatened species to the institutional and economic aspects of conservation. We work globally: from the forests of Madagascar to the savannahs of Africa, from the mountains of Snowdonia to the primeval woodlands of Poland.
Uplands-N2O Research Project
The overarching aims of the project are to gain an improved understanding of the spatial and temporal interactions between sheep grazing behaviour, forage selection, urine composition and edaphic factors to increase the accuracy of direct N2O emission estimates from extensive upland systems.
