Last week, the MARS project held its mid-term meeting in Fulda, Germany.  The meeting brought together project scientists, water managers and policy makers to discuss ongoing research into freshwater multiple stressors.

Below are four audio reflections on the meeting.

The first is from project leader Daniel Hering, who gives an overview of the progress MARS has made on the science and policy of multiple stressors.


Next, Bas van der Wal of water management agency STOWA in the Netherlands tells us about his golden rules for translating freshwater science into policy and management using ‘ecological key factors’.



We speak to Rolf Altenburger from the Helmholtz Centre for Enviromental Research (UFZ) in Leipzig, Germany about freshwater pollution and the SOLUTIONS project.



Finally, Anne Lyche Solheim from NIVA in Norway tells us about the challenges of researching multiple stressors and creating dialogue with water managers and policy makers.
