RegNiBal project, 2015

Project title: Regionalisation of Nitrogen Balances with the CAPRI Model: Pilot project in support of the Eurostat Working Group on Agri-Environmental Indicators

Description: The first objective of this pilot project was to evaluate differences between national Eurostat/OECD gross nutrient budget (GNB) figures and the GNB figures calculated using CAPRI. The second objective was to assess the feasibility of using the CAPRI model to (operationally) provide regional GNB data to complement the national GNBs.
