Free online database of environmental research for policymakers now available
Free to access, the Research Repository builds on Science for Environment Policy?s News Alert and Future Briefs, to create a one-stop shop for environmental policymakers seeking quality research.
It lists studies that have undergone a rigorous selection process, with the assistance of independent scientific advisors, to ensure that only high quality research is featured, that has policy implications in the short, medium or long term. The resource will grow as new research becomes available.
Studies are catalogued by topic, across an extensive range of policy themes, from ecosystem services to ecolabelling, and from soil management to urban water management. This is designed to help ensure that individual policymakers can find studies that are relevant to their specific project.
The Research Repository is published by the Environment Directorate-General of the European Commission as part of the Science for Environment Policy service, which also features free news alerts and policy briefs, to keep environmental policymakers informed of the latest scientific developments.
