AFBI Tender: Provision of Field Surveyors for the DAERA NI Countryside Survey


Department for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs have commissioned a repeat of the NI Countryside Survey commissioned in 2007.

Standard protocols will be followed, in line with the GB Countryside Survey, across a sample set of quarter kilometre (25ha) grid squares located throughout NI.

The Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) in GB are leading the study, partnered by AFBI and Queens University Belfast.

The NI Countryside Survey provides a consistent long-term dataset for analysis of the effects of countryside, agricultural and other policies and pressures as drivers of change.

The survey will be a repeat of the previous survey and will include a large soils component.
