Statement of Need (2010)

Resources relating to the Statement of Need

The Statement of Need is a review of all the environmental observation requirements for the UK and the evidence required to answer major environmental issues and scientific questions.

In addition to open consultation, detailed information on the requirements to meet a series of headline issues was gathered from 120 experts across 40 organisations in a series of environmental domain based workshops.

The overall requirements have been incorporated into the document Towards a Statement of Need which was published in 2010. Detailed information, including the types of measurements required and an initial look at capability, are recorded in the Observation Requirements below.

The captured requirements have not been prioritised and deliberately include all reasons for taking observations.
