They are designed to show you how some of our projects were delivered. Each case study provides background information, examines the original project idea, methodology, funding information, looks at who was involved, and draws out lessons learned from the experience. We hope these case studies will prove useful and inspirational, especially for those delivering similar work. This case study focuses on the European Interreg IIIc-funded ENMaR project, which aimed to help people in local authorities understand the impact of the EU's Water Framework Directive on their work.
