Envirobase holds information on over 22,000 environmental research and observation activities, programmes and data sources provided by public sector funders and voluntary organisations. It is a public resource from the Living With Environmental Change partnership that will be of particular interest to those engaged in:
- developing public or corporate policy
- planning or commissioning future research or observations
- research or observation work
- writing about environmental issues
It provides information on what is being done in the UK to understand the natural world and human interaction with it, and to develop solutions to environmental problems.
Envirobase provides, for the first time, a single search tool for finding both research (‘RES’) and observations (‘UKEOF’). This should help users to understand the complex funding and application picture between the two, but please take care when interpreting summarised results because there are some overlaps between research and observation activities.
For searching observational activities only, the UK-EOF Environmental Observation Activity Catalogue is still available.
