The Bristol Avon Catchment Partnership (BACP) brings together a wide range of stakeholders who share a common desire to improve the water environment and restore the catchment to better health for future generations. The BACP, formed in 2012, is governed by a Steering Group and supported by key stakeholders.
The Partnership works collaboratively across sectors to improve our understanding of the key water challenges, enabling better informed decisions and helping to unlock investment to deliver improvements across the catchment.
The BACP is one of over 100 Catchment Partnerships delivering the Catchment Based Approach across England; a Defra-backed Initiative seeking to improve partnership collaboration and deliver the targets set under the Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan. The BACP will also align and deliver the statutory targets being developed via the Environment Act, specifically focusing on the water and biodiversity targets that are captured within the four priority areas identified by Government for the recovery of nature.
