This report reviews the issues that influence how policymakers work with evidence to develop, implement, monitor and report on environmental policies. Many examples of good practice were unearthed in the study-examples that deserve to be shared more widely. The report also identifies areas that we believe are limiting DEA's ability to make better use of its evidence and which could form the basis for more detailed discussions.
