The CaBA Catchment Data & Evidence Forum 2019 was held in Bristol Zoo’s Clifton Pavillion on September 18th, and the 75 attendees listened to over 20 topics. Workshops were held to debate the future CaBA data sharing and monitoring strategy, and interactive voting sessions were used to gauge audience opinion on a range of issues. This resource provides a handy overview of the presentations and workshops of the forum.
