The overall objective of this study was to support the European Commission in exploring opportunities to reinforce the science and policy interface in relation to EU environment policy. The project methodology is presented in Appendix 1. The study carried out analysis across a series of ‘building blocks’ related to the science and environment policy interface. Project tasks included the following: Analysis of the scientific evidence used and science knowledge gaps in 10 key areas of environmental policy; A review of innovative examples of how international, national and regional policy-makers consult with scientific advisers, focusing on the methods and practices; Liaising with scientists and policy experts involved in integrating sound science into policy, to further explore the innovative examples and to use their lessons to strengthen the EU science policy interface. On the basis of this work, the study prepared a series of recommendations on the EU’s existing practices and strengthening the science and environment policy interface.
