A Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum Keynote Seminar

With the Environment Secretary due to introduce a 25-year Environment Plan by the start of 2018, this seminar will be a timely opportunity to discuss policy priorities for further protecting the environment and conserving natural capital.

The agenda includes keynote addresses from: Nick Barter, Deputy Director, Natural Environment Strategy, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and Emma Howard Boyd, Chair, Environment Agency.

Discussion will focus on measures to protect the environment, including the funding mechanisms and access to capital for new schemes; the possible role of a new, independent body for environmental standards, and the potential impact of additional Government support such as the Countryside Stewardship Facilitation Fund aimed at encouraging farmers and organisations to implement environmentally-friendly measures.

Sessions will also bring out latest thinking on how the direction of policy fits in with the commercial use of land, the future relationship between conservation and good business practice, latest thinking on the role of the planning system in environmental protection, and challenges for developing the evidence base to inform policy decision-making with the setting up of the Natural Environment Research Council as part of UK Research & Innovation (UKRI).
