The Water Forum’s proposed Framework for Integrated Land and Landscape Management (FILLM)
An Fóram Uisce I The Water Forum was established as a statutory body in June 2018 to facilitate stakeholder engagement and debate on issues relating to water as a resource, water quality, rural water concerns, issues affecting customers of Irish Water and issues associated with the implementation of the Water Framework Directive.
In undertaking its role, the Forum is conscious that the various components of our natural environment – water, ecosystems, air, soils, rocks, land, landscapes – are interlinked and interdependent, and that therefore management of our environment needs to be undertaken in an integrated, holistic manner and have developed the Framework for Integrated Land and Landscape Management (FILLM) as a means of encouraging multi-disciplinary and multi-organisational approaches as well as environmental policy coherence, policy integration and policy implementation.
