A framework for UK research and evidence needs relating to air pollution impacts on ecosystems 2015
Atmosphere JNCC Publications Evidence Pollution Ecosystem Ecosystem assessment Conservation status
The purpose of the document is to provide a framework for UK research and evidence needs relating to air pollution impacts on ecosystems. The evidence and research needs are organised into three high-level themes and linked to policy and operational drivers.
The Framework is aimed principally at informing the direction of future research of the country nature conservation bodies (CNCBs), much of which is likely to be undertaken in collaboration via the Inter-agency Air Pollution Group. It is therefore targeted at specific areas/questions which are a priority to help the CNCBs deliver their functions. However, it also includes evidence and research areas which are broader than the CNCBs’ direct remit where these are traditionally funded by other bodies, but which the CNCBs depend on to interpret evidence.
The Framework is designed to be shared and to help inform the work of others with similar interests and responsibilities (e.g. Government departments and Devolved Administrations, environment agencies, research councils, universities, and industry).
