[Briefing] The case for closer cooperation with European partners on environmental data and information; the UK, European Environment Agency & Eionet

AUTHOR: Michael Nicholson

IEEP UK’s work in the past three years has shown that due to disruptions in data, in part from leaving institutions such as the European Environment Agency and Eionet, a full nationwide picture of the state and trends in the UK environment has been lost in a variety of thematic policy areas. This sits alongside an increased risk of consequential divergence in environmental policy since leaving the EU, the extent to which is difficult to ascertain without this data.

This briefing paper explores the role of the European Environment Agency and Eionet, what closer cooperation between the UK and these bodies could look like and why there is a stronger case for exploring this now.
