Interpreting Science for Environmental Policy

The Environment Research Funders Forum (ERFF) has published a new report entitled Using Research to Inform Policy: The Role of Interpretation. The study examines the interpretation of environmental research for policymakers and identifies a number of ways in which it could be more effective. Two of the key recommendations are to create more opportunities for policy advisers and experts working on the same issue to establish and maintain contact and the provision of readily accessible information from research on policy issues. The report will be of interest to both sides of the science-policy inteface.
