What is the objectives of the NutrientNet project?

edu.NutrientNet.org is an offshoot of WRI's overall program to encourage and facilitate water quality trading. This educational version is based on NutrientNet.org, which can actually be used by policy makers as a clearinghouse for water quality trades.

Who are the target users of edu.NutrienNet.org?

The site is designed for classes in environmental and natural resource management and/or environmental economics. Students of watershed management would find the site particularly useful. Typically, students in environmental economics or environmental engineering classes would have enough background knowledge to easily understand and enjoy a NutrientNet exercise. Moreover, instructors and students can find background information and support in the online documents available from the main page of edu.NutrientNet.org, including the Guide to Market-Based Approaches to Water Quality.
