This document sets out how Defra is working towards supporting a strong and sustainable green economy and resilience to climate change.
Evidence Plans are part of Defra’s business planning processes. They have been developed for each policy programme, ongoing function or hub with a substantial evidence base.
The main purposes of Evidence Plans are to help Defra policy and evidence teams to:
- Maintain a clear “line of sight‟ between policy objectives and evidence needs;
- Ensure best use of others‟ evidence and maximise opportunities for partnerships;
- Show a clear rationale and value for money for Defra investment in evidence;
- Prepare for policy evaluation.
