Abstract

Nitrogen compounds are essential for life. They are needed to make many biological compounds including proteins, amino acids, DNA and ATP (the 'fuel source' of cells), without which no living organism could survive. Nitrogen is particularly important because it often limits food production, while high levels of N compounds in the environment lead to serious pollution problems. By supplying N fertilizers, farmers greatly improve their yields. This has been essential to feed the growing world population over the last century, with N fertilizers estimated to sustain ~3.5 billion people, almost half of humanity.

While the increased manufacture and mobilization of reactive N sources can be seen as a great feat of 'geoengineering', there have been many unintended consequences. A growing human population needs more food, so more fertilizers, especially as we now eat more animal products per person. The result is a complex web of pollution issues, threatening water, air and soil quality, altering climate balance and impacting on ecosystems and human health. In addition to the loss of N from farms, other sources cannot be forgotten. These include air emissions from burning, and losses to water from sewage systems. Overall, human alteration of the global N cycle makes for a multi-issue problem that ranks alongside climate change as one of the great challenges of the 21st century. The European Nitrogen Assessment has estimated that N pollution alone causes 70-320 billion Euro per year of damage across the EU (Nature, 14 April 2011,472,159).

Given the wide diversity of nitrogen loss pathways into the environment, there are many potential solutions. In a recent report 'Our Nutrient World' led by CEH for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP, launched Feb 2013), 10 key actions were identified which would contribute to better nutrient management, simultaneously helping to meet food security goals while reducing the pollution of air, land and water, with multiple benefits for ecosystems, climate and human health. However, 'Our Nutrient World' also identified that there is currently no global international agreement that links the many benefits and threats of nitrogen. As a result, there is also no coordinated scientific assessment and support process to quantify and demonstrate these linkages.

This gap is now being addressed by the International Opportunities Fund (IOF) of the NERC through its support for a new endeavour "Pump priming to towards the International Nitrogen Management System" - or 'INMSpp' for short.

The central idea is that a scientific support system is needed that can provide the evidence needed to show how joined-up management of the global nitrogen cycle will deliver multiple benefits, and to be able to evaluate options that policy makers may wish to consider. Already there is a developing ambition for INMS as reflected by the invitation from the UN Global Environment Facility (GEF) for the NERC Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) to work with UNEP to develop a concept to establish a future INMS approach. Ultimately this would be a major endeavour, linking indicators, models and datasets to allow evaluation of possible international agreements.

The INMS pump priming project provides a key step towards this eventual goal. As one of the key challenges to establish model chains from source to impact to mitigation and adaptation the INMSpp project has taken on the task of working out how integrated global modelling of the nitrogen cycle should be developed. The project will bring together a global consortium to examine how models can be joined up to demonstrate the net benefits of better nitrogen management. This will be a key resource as the INMS approach is developed. The outcome is the prospect to show how linking up different international environmental agreements can build common ground, simultaneously supporting food and energy security and a cleaner environment.

Planned Impact

a. Integrating research perspectives

The INMSpp project will benefit UK competitiveness by bringing together UK scientists with leading international partners allowing UK to lead the agenda on global nitrogen research in relation to environmental challenges. By going the 'extra mile' in integrating air, land and marine flows with impacts assessment and economic modelling, the project will provide key training for the team members, while improving UK competitiveness in the future global market for N management expertise. This can be expected to develop strongly as a response to increased awareness of N impacts as a result of the INMSpp and eventual INMS endeavours (impact: 3-20 years).

b. Cost savings for environmentally sensitive farming and environmental regulation

Agricultural activities, especially livestock, have major impacts on the environment leading to large societal costs. Improved understanding of N cycling will underpin advice on improved management techniques, both for farmers and conservation managers. By decreasing losses of nitrogen from the farming system, environmental measures can help farmers reduce their fertilizer bill. For example, a 30% reduction in agricultural N losses equates to a saving of 5 bn Euro per year to EU farmers (based on ENA). Environmental regulation can also entail costs to farmers, depending on the nature of best available techniques (BAT) and ambition of the commitments. Unit costs of abatement measures are substantially reduced where multiple benefits can be shown. (impact 5-10 yrs).

c. Evidence underpinning future European air quality, climate and other environmental policy

The ongoing negotiations to the EU National Emissions Ceilings Directive (NECD) highlight the importance of supporting European air policy with scientific evidence. In particular, the societal costs of particulate matter and N deposition to ecosystems highlight the need to understand the atmospheric and climate controls. The current analysis (see CLRTAP Long-term strategy, ECE/EB.AIR/2010/4) recognizes the challenge to increasingly link up between such policy domains to quantify the co-benefits between air pollution, climate, water and biodiversity policies, and to develop a holistic approach to N management. The INMSpp project will help take this to the next stage (linking air, climate and nutrients) by developing the basis for establishing future coupled modelling chains, allowing these links, and the economic consequences to be quantified. (impact: 3 to 10 yrs).

d. Supporting a global perspective on nitrogen management

At present there is no multilateral environmental agreement (MEA) to handle nitrogen management problems at a global scale as for climate and biodiversity. The INMSpp project will make a major impact in this direction by contributing the scientific capacity-building and data needed to underpin such a future MEA or more effective partnership between existing MEAs. The project will provide international scientific leadership to support these developments through involvement in the UNEP Global Partnership on Nutrient Management and the INI feeding directly into the GPA and UNEP agenda development (impact: 3-10 yrs).

e. Quality of life in a cleaner world.

Together, these activities will play a key role in improving quality of life. Until recently, the 'nitrogen challenge' facing humanity has received rather little publicity compared with issues such as climate change. Yet the recent ENA estimates of 70-320 billion Euro per year worth of N damage to human health, ecosystems and climate show that a cleaner management of nitrogen has a huge potential to benefit citizens. By improving integration across the nitrogen cycle, the benefit-cost ratios of mitigation measures will further increase, providing scientific evidence to support decision makers and citizens at local, national and international levels (impact: 2-20 yrs).

Description The INMS Pump Priming project was a International Opportunities Fund project designed to prepare the way to establish the International Nitrogen Management System (INMS). As such its main purpose was network development and upscaling of a community of shared ideas, including the organisation of meetings that bring INMS into being. As part of this process, the INMS Pump Priming workshop in Edinburgh (April 2015) brought scientists together to address key threats and identify the priorities for further action. It was agreed that there are Five Key Threats of nitrogen pollution, plus two major benefits that need to be addressed within the scope of INMS: Water quality, Air quality, Greenhouse Gas balance, Ecosystems & Biodiversity, and Soil Quality, with the key benefits of nitrogen being for Food and Energy production. (Together making the acronym WAGES-FE). The developed consensus building has now fed into the further development of INMS, which was successful in the award of a 6 M USD grant from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) through the UN Environment Programme, with 54 M USD contributions in kind from a network of 80 partner organisations globally.
Exploitation Route The results are now being used by the GEF/UNEP INNS process to develop a global science support system for international nitrogen policy. This is being conducted in partnership with regional intergovernmental bodies, such as the South Asia Cooperative Environment Programme (SACEP), the Lake Victoria Basin Commission, the Black Sea Commission, the La Plata River Basin Commission, the Partnership for Environmental Management in the Seas of East Asia (PEMSEA) and others, together contributing to key conventions across the nitrogen policy arena. These include the Global Programme of Action for the Protection of the Marine Environment from Land-based Activities (GPA), the UNECE Convention on Long-range transboundary air pollution (LRTAP), the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, and the UN Vienna Convention on protection of the ozone layer. Coordinating action is being developed in partnership with UNEP including through the United Nations Environment Assembly.

Description INMS Pump Priming was an NERC International Opportunities Fund project with the central goal to prepare the foundations to establish an eventual science support process for international policy development on nitrogen. In developing this pump priming approach, the project acted catalytically to stimulate global network development and stakeholder engagement as a foundation to establishing a future "International Nitrogen Management System (INMS)". The nitrogen cycle crosses multiple environmental, food and energy security concerns, so that human alternation of the nitrogen cycle is having systemic affects across the Earth system, that affect air pollution, water pollution, climate change, ecosystems and biodiversity, soils and stratospheric ozone depletion, while at the same time creating benefits through fertilizers and biological nitrogen fixation for world food supply. The problem is that the huge breadth of impact of the nitrogen cycle alteration means that specialisation among scientists and policymakers is typically failing to grasp the bigger picture. The core hypothesis of the INMS approach is therefore that a joined up approach to the nitrogen cycle can provide the foundation for a more coherent scientific understanding that will inform a more coherent set of future policies. With major barriers to change in achieving a cleaner and more sustainable world, it can be expected that such a joined up approach will consolidate the benefits of taking action, maximize synergies, reduce trade-offs and in the end, help overcome these barriers to change. The INMS Pump Priming project has enabled major progress in contributing to these necessary international developments. Specifically, it took the lead in developing the vision for what it would mean to develop global and regional integrated assessment modelling capability for the nitrogen cycle, by bringing different modelling experts together and identifying the linkages, priority connections and modelling plus data needs. More broadly, it INMS Pump Priming supported the wider process of INMS development. Key outcomes of this catalytic approach include the awarding of several additional projects that amplify the global critical mass in this area, including winning a project preparation grant to develop a full scale proposal with the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) for a full scale project "Towards INMS". This project preparation phase demonstrated the effectiveness of the "Pump Priming" approach to stimulate these key international collaborations. Though INMS Pump Priming, a strong level of science policy engagement is now being supported, developing the necessary engagement between the global science community under UK leadership and the key international policy forums and frameworks. This is showing outcomes both through the emerging development of national initiatives, where bilateral engagement with INMS Pump Priming is supporting countries in developing their own national nitrogen strategies (e.g. Canada, European Union, Germany, India, Sri Lanka, Portugal and UK), as well as in the global and regional context, utilizing existing policy frameworks. Through this approach a more coordinated basis is being developed to design a suitable approach for science evidence provision for international policy development (developing the INMS architecture in partnership with a wide range of global stakeholders) and to develop the 'nitrogen policy arena' to show how existing international policy frameworks can work more effectively together. Such a transformation of the current policy landscape for nitrogen, stimulated by an international scientific process, is anticipated to be critical in overcoming the barriers to better management of the World's nitrogen cycle. The outcome in the end, will be to show how nitrogen science can support policy makers and practitioners in improving multiple sustainability indicators simultaneously, where better nitrogen management leads to cleaner air, cleaner water, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, reduced adverse effects on biodiversity and ecosystems, and more sustainable soils. Together with an anticipated improvement in "global nitrogen use efficiency", the aim will be to demonstrate in 20 years' time, how the INMS science has simultaneously helped underpin delivery of a cleaner environment with improved food and energy provision for the world. Since completion of the project, subsequent high level outcomes have included: • Establishment of the GEF/UNEP project Towards the establishment of an International Nitrogen Management System (INMS) (2017-2023) • Establishment of the UKRI GCRF South Asian Nitrogen Hub (2019-2024) • Adoption, under the lead and piloting of the Principal Investigator (PI) in partnership with India, of the first ever UN Environment Assembly Resolution on Sustainable Nitrogen management (UNEP/EA.4/Res.14). (March 2019) • Adoption, under the lead an piloting of the PI, in partnership with Sri Lanka, of the Colombo Declaration on Sustainable Nitrogen Management, agreed by 14 UN member states. (Octobr 2019) • Launching of the #Nitogen4NetZero initiative by INMS in partnership with the Government of Sri Lanka, British High Commission and South Asian Cooperative Environment Programme (SACEP) for COP26 including the "Statement on Action for Nitrogen and Climate" and the event 'Rediscovering Nitrogen' with the heads of state of Sri Lanka and Maldives and the Commonwealth Secretary General. (March and Nov 2021) • Adoption, under the lead and piloting of the PI in partnership with Sri Lanka of a second UN Environment Assembly Resolution on Sustainable Nitrogen Management, being the first to frame ambition "to accelerate action to substantially reduce nitrogen waste by 2030 and beyond" (UNEP/EA.5/L12/Rev.1).

Impact Spearheaded by Sri Lanka, United Nations member states endorsed a proposed roadmap for action on nitrogen challenges called the Colombo Declaration on Sustainable Nitrogen Management, at a meeting in October 2019. The Colombo Declaration was developed with the technical support of the International Nitrogen Management System (INMS), a joint activity of the UNEP and the International Nitrogen Initiative supported by the Global Environment Facility and the engagement of the UKRI GCRF South Asian Nitrogen Hub. As part of the Declaration, environment ministers and officials representing the governments of more than 30 countries endorsed United Nations plans for a campaign on sustainable nitrogen management called "Nitrogen for Life", which stems from the Sustainable Nitrogen Management Resolution which was adopted during the fourth session of the UN Environment Assembly held from 11 - 15 March 2019 at the UNEP headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya. At the time of submission 14 countries have signed the Colombo Declaration. The Colombo Declaration considers how to manage nitrogen pollution and therefore has the potential for positive impacts on human and ecosystems health, mitigation of climate change, enhance food security and promote economic sustainability. It's scope is global and therefore is a step towards reaching significant impact.

Impact The written and oral evidence to the House of Commons EFRA Select Committee focused on the opportunities for innovation and cost saving by implementing low emission techniques for ammonia in farming. This will have influenced both the Select Committee, emphasizing the high degree of feasibility of such approaches, while the written evidence is now available on line, while the hearing is on Parliament TV. Among the findings I reported was that nitrogen pollution emissions in Europe amount to around €15 billion per year as lost fertilizer value and between €70 to €320 billion per year in terms of social and environmental costs. This emphasizes the strong green economy and circular economy case for taking actions to reduce these losses, keeping nitrogen in the farming system and while simultaneously reducing environmental pollution.

Description Presentation at The Royal Society's Global Environmental Research Committee (GERC) : 'The Needs and Opportunities in Tropical Coral Coasts'
Geographic Reach National 
Policy Influence Type Participation in a national consultation
Impact "The Royal Society's Global Environmental Research Committee (GERC) is hosting this workshop with the aim to identify priority areas for UK research within the UN Decade of Ocean Science at a level suitable for possible UK research programmes. The intention is to produce a set of priority topics that will be synthesised into an overarching document for wide dissemination. Priority areas will take account of the Sustainable Development Goals, and of UK research strengths in science and the application of science to society. Workshop format: 4 sessions over 11 days. The sessions will be recorded to allow people who have missed a session to catch up." ATTENDEES: ~60 attendees, including: - Marine scientists (mostly UK, some international) - Representatives from and advisors to UK Government: DEFRA, JNCC, FCDO, CEFAS - UNESCO representatives from the International Oceanographic Commission - EU Marine Board - NGOs SUMMARY: The tag line for the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030) is "the science we need for the ocean we want". In this context the series of four workshops identified opportunities for the UK marine science community to mobilise and deliver transformative marine research to deliver sustainable development outcomes. Four 'priority' areas were identified for the UK's potential contribution to the UN Ocean Decade, all building on existing UK strengths and opportunities. One of these is 'Coral Coasts' (The case for this, including the projected Outputs and Outcomes of such a decade-long initiative, is summarised below). WORKSHOP OUTPUTS: The specific output from this Workshop will be: - A short high-level overview of the key outcomes of the workshop, including recommendations. - A series of annexes including a synthesis of the workshop discussion, the workshop agenda and the attendees list. These will be published imminently (due end Feb 2021) WORKSHOP OUTCOMES: These recommendations are likely to lead to mobilisation of the UK and international scientific community and national and international funding around the priority themes over the next decade. This will lead to improved marine ecosystems and increased resilience, health, and livelihoods of resource-dependent coastal communities globally. THE CASE FOR "CORAL COASTS" AS UK PRIORITY ARE FOR THE UN OCEAN DECADE: a) THE CONTEXT CORAL REEFS: • <0.1% of the ocean area, but home to ~25% of known marine species. • Ecosystem Services ~US$350billion - US$10trillion/annum. • 30-50% of coral reefs lost or severely degraded over last few decades due to overexploitation, pollution and climate change MANGROVES: • Biodiversity and coastal protection worth up to US$24trillion/annum. • 30-50% mangrove cover lost over the past century. • mangrove loss accounts for ~10% of global deforestation CO2 emissions. PEOPLE: • Over 100 million small scale fishers in the Global South depend on these tropical coral coast resources. • They land ~50% of global catch, feeding about 1 billion people worldwide. • Some of the poorest and most climate-vulnerable communities. CONSEQUENCES: an interlinked ecological and humanitarian crisis b) UK STRENGTHS AND NATURAL ADVANTAGES - SCIENCE: Excellent science across spectrum of coral reef and mangrove research (authorship in 10-15% of all publications over past decade) - REACH: globally distributed (Commonwealth; Overseas Territories, other historical ties); exceptional NGO sector; trusted partnerships; alignment to national initiatives. - TRANSDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH: pioneers in bridging social and natural sciences for sustainable development outcomes: e.g., ESPA, GCRF c) The Concept: "Climate-proofing food security and livelihoods on tropical coral coasts" Essential Elements: - Science solutions: Includes integration of traditional knowledge and 'citizen science'. - Co-creation: Co-create from the outset; support local capacity and ownership of context-appropriate solutions. - Democratising data: ensure data and knowledge are in the hands of those who most need it, from community fishers to national governments. Measures of Success: - Outputs: openly accessible data, platforms and publications. - Outcomes: (i.e., what makes it 'transformative'). These can be delivered within the Decade: o Restored ecosystems (increased biodiversity, biomass and sustainable fish yield). o Improved human health and nutrition o Reduced poverty and inequality o Gender equity o Increased resilience to externally driven change and shocks (climate; COVID) o Climate mitigation

Policy Influence Type Participation in a advisory committee
Impact The potential reach and significance of the work of the 'UNEP Nitrogen Working Group' is very wide as it brings together nations from all regions and experts from several relevant conventions to discuss how to tackle nitrogen management in an integrated way. One proposal is the development of an 'Interconvention Nitrogen Co-ordination Mechanism', to allow discourse and planning between conventions on how to tackle the problem and supported by science from experienced researchers. The benefits of this would range from improvements in human and ecosystems health, mitigation of climate change, enhanced food security and more sustainable economies.

Geographic Reach Multiple continents/international 
Policy Influence Type Citation in other policy documents
Impact The newly developed and now adopted UNECE Guidance Document on Integrated Sustainable Nitrogen Management will give governments, farmers and their advisers the evidence they need to reduce the nitrogen that is wasted to air and water, which is estimated at around USD 200 billion annually. It will help reduce nitrogen losses, keeping more nitrogen on farms, where it is needed, with benefits for food production, the economy, the environment and human health. The Guidance recognizes that the cost and effectiveness of measures to reduce N losses need to take account of the regional opportunities and constraints of farmers, including farm size, farm structure and economic context. The UNECE region includes both Europe and North America.

Results and Impact ResearchFish can itself be an important engagement activity. With a huge potential readership, there is opportunity for raising issues and increasing public awareness. It remains open question, however, whether the approach is effective at reaching the target audiences. Are users actually reading the ResearchFish reports?

We here foster direct engagement in ResearchFish and the nitrogen cycle by posing three key questions. Prizes are available for the first person to answer each question correctly.

Question 1: Which biogeochemical Proteus is responsible for feeding nearly half the world's population?

Question 2: Which nitrogen vapour has secured a spiritual home for 70% of humanity, and why?

Question 3: What is the optimal configuration for science to support policies on the global nitrogen cycle?

The prize for the first correct answer to Question 1 is a bottle of whisky. For the first correct answer to Question 2, the prize is a cup of aqua vitae. It may be that Question 3 does not have a single correct answer. For the best answer, the prize is the opportunity to see it become reality.

Claims for prizes should be addressed to inms@ceh.ac.uk

Results and Impact Industry 4.0 brought in digitization which integrated technology into all the areas of business operations and impacted the deliverables to customers. This digital transformation permeated into all the business models with the key drivers comprising profitability, collaboration across departments and process optimization. Thus, such path-breaking transformations make flexibility an imperative in work and the workforce.

Businesses require strategic planning based on evidence/data which has become the mainstay of the digital world. This agile liquid enterprise evidenced in organizations today depend on leaders taking new directions and constantly experimenting with ideas and strategies to build viable business. Leaders of these enterprises are more likely to succeed than those who insist on holding steadfast to realities that succeeded in the past.

Flexible working conditions have undergone a paradigm change demanding trust in people's competencies as well as in digital infrastructure. The present times mandate not only a prepared and an agile organizational design, but also a resilient workforce. Revolutionary changes in industrial structure and customer expectations have given rise to the need for equally pronounced changes in business strategies and operational models, to attain competitive edge. Every functioning entity has come to realize that speed to adapt matters.

With the onset of the COVID19 pandemic, organizations have been coerced to envisage newer, leaner and sustainable methods of conducting their business.Future has arrived faster than anticipated as most companies have shifted to remote working style and most activities are being carried out on digital platforms.

Taking this as the trigger, the proposed International Management Conference, wishes to focus on the issues and lessons learnt during pandemic hardship, and the research thinking/ opportunities aimed at post-COVID era.

The scope of this conference extends to business, management and Economic operations/ models, across all functional areas/ verticals.

The event, held online under the theme: Integrated Solutions #For Nature. aims to strengthen the interface and collaboration between key sectors and stakeholders in support of UNEP's new Medium Term Strategy and the Programme of Work.

The UNEP Science-Policy-Business Forum brings together influential actors from the business, technology and finance sectors, as well as Government ministers, public policy experts, policy makers, leading scientists, civil society and the media. The Third Global Session will witness the launch of the Youth work stream of the Forum, which focuses on green technology and green jobs.

Nature-positive Food Systems for a Healthy Planet and Healthy People
The rebuilding of economies after the COVID-19 crisis offers a unique opportunity to transform the global food system and make it resilient to future shocks, while ensuring environmentally sustainable and healthy nutrition for all. As agricultural systems form the foundation of our food systems, it is imperative that they are redesigned to restore and regenerate, rather than degrade ecosystems - all while providing affordable and healthy diets for a global population estimated to reach 10 billion by 2050.
The Forum will witness the launch of joint pilots facilitated by the Forum and announcements of decarbonization and sustainability milestones and by partner industries and enterprises. The event will unleash access to (and understanding of the latest technologies, including AI, which can fast-track and power the implementation of the SDGs. Ethics, equity, equality and fair and inclusive sustainable development is at the heart of our discussions and collaborations.

Professor Mark Sutton was a panel member in the Nature-positive Food Systems for a Healthy Planet and Healthy People session.

Results and Impact Following the circulation of an initial background document on the planned modelling activities within Towards INMS, 29 participants attended a 1.5 day meeting to outline the workplan of both Activities 1.5 and 2.1 (as they are closely linked). A number of participants with active models and modelling networks presented on their activities and how these could engage with the Towards INMS project. The outcomes of the project were discussed at length and a call for interest (along with budget requests) was sent out shortly after the meeting in order to further the details of the workplan for these activities. The workshop was financially supported by the UK funded INMS Pump Priming project, which facilitated the attendance of many of the participants, along with support from several partners also interested to engage in the work.
