Food production often is a source of multiple pollutants in water. Examples are nutrients and pathogens causing eutrophication and waterborne diseases. Agricultural Green Development (AGD) is a promising solution for sustainable food production and clean water. This research aims to assess future AGD in China, in terms of sustainable food production and multiple pollutants in water systems at different scales (sub-basins, North China Plain, China, Global). A multi-pollutant model will be developed building on existing modelling approaches. This will be combined with scenario analysis, and a participatory approach to identify AGD options for reducing pollutants to waters from agriculture.
