About the DAFM Water Network
The Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine (DAFM) Water Network was established following an internal Water Forum in October 2015, which created an opportunity to collectively share knowledge and expertise from across the water-related work areas of DAFM and its agencies. The purpose of the Water Network is to provide strategic direction and leadership to guide, co-ordinate and communicate the water-related work of DAFM and its agencies, in order to strengthen the parallel delivery of good water quality and safe, sustainable food production.
The Water Network comprises representatives from across the following DAFM divisions and agencies:
DAFM Divisions: Nitrates, Biodiversity & Engineering; Economics & Planning; Climate Change & Bioenergy Policy; Forest Service; Research & CODEX; Pesticide Registration & Control; DAFM Laboratories; Horticulture & Plant Health; Dairy Controls; Integrated Controls; Agricultural Environment & Structures.
DAFM Agencies: Teagasc; Bord Bia; Marine Institute; Sea Fisheries Protection Authority.
