Citizen dialogue on policy instruments for the reduction of reactive nitrogen

In order to develop an effective strategy for nitrogen mitigation, a holistic and integrative approach is needed that includes mitigation measures from all fields.

The German federal adminsitrations thus work on an action programme for integrated nitrogen mitigation, which will include measures and instruments for the reduction of reactive nitrogen. This is accompanied by a citizen dialogue, that creates awareness of this problem and generates stimuli to the political discussion. Zebralog conducted the dialogue together with adelphi on behalf of the government agencies. Here, the process and the results of this delibarative process are depicted.
