Title: Environment Agency North West : who we are and what we do
Author: Environment Agency North West Region
Document Type: Monograph
The North West region covers around 14,000 square km, from Cheshire in the south to Cumbria in the north. Around 7 million people live in the region; most in the urban areas of Merseyside and Greater Manchester. The landscape is varied and beautiful, from mountains and lakes in Cumbria, to the seaside at Blackpool and the industrial heritage of Manchester. Agriculture covers 80 per cent of the region, and important habitat and wildlife areas include nearly 400 Sites of Special Scientific Interest. The region has significant environmental challenges, with 35 per cent of England's derelict land and a third of the poorest quality rivers in England and Wales. This booklet contains sections on wildlife, waste, flood, regulation, water and climate change.
