Veterinary Medicines and Antimicrobial Resistance Evidence Plan 2011/12

This publication was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

This document sets out the evidence plan for both the veterinary medicines and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) research programmes.



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.
