UK Waste and Resources Evidence Strategy

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) works for the essentials water, food, air, land, people, animals and plants – aiming to make a difference environmental leadership and putting sustainable development into practice. As a society, consuming natural resources at an unsustainable rate and large step-changes in our approach tackling environmental threats such as climate change are needed.
Sustainable waste and resource management has a part to play in meeting these aims. The the Waste Strategy for England 2007 is to reduce waste by making products with fewer resources, breaking the link between economic growth and waste growth. Products re-used, their materials recycled, energy from waste recovered, and landfilling of residual should occur only where necessary.
These strategic aims set out by Government have been a major driver for the production Waste and Resources Evidence Strategy 2007-2011. This follows the Waste and Resources Strategy 2004/05-2006/07, which was produced after the establishment of a dedicated Waste
Resources Research Programme within Defra in 2003. The programme is highly regarded, generating over 80 projects to date and underpinned by a budget of up to £5 million per annum.
