A set of policy briefs based on MANTEL publications
Policy briefing notes have been drafted based on MANTEL publications and MANTEL serious games. The aim is to provide an overview of MANTEL outputs that may be useful for water managers and other stakeholders. These will become available as MANTEL outputs are published.

Policy briefing note 1. Exploring the effects of climate extremes on lakes using high frequency data.
This policy brief describes advances in our knowledge of the impacts of storms on lakes and reservoirs based on studies using high frequency monitoring data as part of MANTEL.
Policy briefing note 2. Exploring the effects of climate on lakes using long-term and multi-site data.
This policy brief describes advances in our understanding of the role of climate change and other
human-related pressures in driving changes in lake phytoplankton based on outputs from MANTEL
Policy briefing note 3. Exploring the effects of climate extremes on lakes: modelling lake stratification.
This policy brief describes advances in modelling changes in lake stratification based on outputs from MANTEL
Policy briefing note 4. Flipping Lakes: a card game to explain water management to stakeholders.
This policy brief describes Flipping Lakes, a serious game that is intended to facilitate outreach and educate on catchment-scale water-quality management to local communities and other stakeholders.
Policy briefing note 5. The Water Management Benefit Game: a card game to explain lake cause-effect relationships. This policy brief describes this 'serious' game, developed during MANTEL, which can be used to train water managers and other stakeholders on tracking cause-effect relationships between actions and lake water quality and services.
