Detail

The aim of this project was to improve the Environment Agency’s understanding of the relationship between environmental quality and social deprivation. Whilst there has been a general recognition that deprived communities are likely to experience disproportionate levels of pollution and other forms of environmental degradation, the evidence-base for policy development by the Agency and others has been lacking.
