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
