Water and Our Water Habitats
Fresh water makes up 3% of the world's water. 1% is available for use as the other 2% are locked up in ice-caps.
The waterbodies within the various catchments of Tipperary support a wide range of livelihoods and ecosystem services.
The statistics in the most recent EPA water quality report highlight that Ireland has gone from having 500 pristine rivers 30 years ago to having just 20 today. This highlights the urgency for awareness raising and follow-on actions to halt this decline and to implement measures to significantly improve the water bodies in line with the requirements of the EU Water Framework Directive.
These Training Workshops are promoted by the Cabragh Wetlands Trust in Thurles and are funded by North Tipperary Development Company. The workshops will be delivered by Sean O’ Farrell and Tom Ban.
