Objectives of the KTP

The aim of the KTP for the company partner was to be met through the following objectives:-

1.    develop method for feasibility studies of sites to assess suitability for wetland developments;

2.    develop design process for the creation / restoration of wetland habitats;

3.    realise opportunities to integrate wetland development with BAPs of commercial organisations;

4.    develop training plans for dissemination of methods to existing staff.

In the course of the KTP scheme, all of these objectives were achieved and the aim met. Furthermore, the scope of the project was extended to cover both the initial development of a process for implementing the designs produced, and an initial review of procedures for monitoring wetland sites.
