Communications materials for the Nutrient Trading Program

Communications materials for the Nutrient Trading Program

Between July 2020 to January 2021, the Integration and Application Network collaborated with the Maryland Department of Environment to develop communication products that promote the state's Water Quality Trading Program. Maryland’s W​​​ater Quality Trading Program creates a public market for nitrogen, phosphorus and sediment reductions. This voluntary program is a collaborative effort between Maryland Department of the Environment and the Maryland Department of Agriculture to enhance the restoration and protection of the Chesapeake Bay and local waters by accelerating the pace and reducing the cost of implementation efforts. During this project, IAN produced an informative digital newsletter to educate prospective buyers and sellers of credits as well as a storymap for interested parties to explore where credits are available for trade across the state.
