OECD-EUROSTAT N Balance Analysis (OENBA)
Joint Eurostat-OECD meetings identify and agree on the most robust and feasible methodology for the calculation of N and P balances. This handbook sets out the main principles of the methodology across OECD and EU Member countries. The aim is to be able to consistently produce an indicator based on a single methodology and harmonised definitions for all countries. In Slovenia, results are prepared by the Agricultural Institute for the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning. This paper based tool serves as basis for reporting to the EU about Nitrate Directive implantation and as a basis for preparation of legislation and measures for drinking water protection areas.
