The future of evidence based environmental policy in the Brexit UK Summary notes

The future of evidence based environmental policy in the Brexit UK

Summary note from a joint UKNEE & NCI Seminar on 07/02/2017

115 people registered for the seminar, most within the first few days of announcement. This is the biggest turnout for the evening seminars either organisation has ever hosted. The participants were economists, environmental scientists and others working for private companies, public agencies and NGOs covering a wide variety of sectors including water, agriculture and insurance.

We – the communities the UKNEE and the NCI represent – will be stronger if we produce policy options, not only evidence; if we cooperate and if we speak out.

The future of evidence based environmental policy in the Brexit UK

When: Tuesday, 7th February 2017, 16:30-18:30 

Where: Charles Darwin House, 12 Roger Street, London WC1N 2JU


The UK has a proud tradition of evidence based policy making, including for the environment. It is, however, a tradition facing an unpredictable future in light of changes to policy priorities, the role of public sector and research budgets. Brexit brings added uncertainty for the future. 

Yet there are clear prospects for scientific expertise and innovative ideas to influence the direction of policy – from agri-environment to fisheries. How can we make the case for research, and frame it in a manner that is practical and useful to inform policy making?

Hosted by Natural Capital Initiative (NCI) and the UK Network of Environmental Economists (UKNEE), this event provides a multidisciplinary forum to explore the risks and opportunities that accompany this change. Our speakers will both present evidence and pose questions to make this an engaging and memorable debate…no doubt one of many we will need to have going forward, not least in contributing to the forthcoming Great Repeal Bill.  

Chair: Joan Walley, Chair of Aldersgate Group

Speakers: 

Seminar is free but spaces are limited. Registration is essential. Please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it no later than 3rd February.

Further details on presentation will be disseminated. There will be plenty of time for debate.
