The National Centre for Risk Analysis and Options Appraisal has been assisted in producing this review by the Environmental Policy and Management Group, Imperial College, London. The report provides a short introduction to the method before detailing the issues involved. The aim of the report is to support the Environment Agency in its consideration of Sustainability Appraisal for the purposes of its own planning and policy making and to provide technical advice to Local Government Liaison at Head Office who are coordinating the Agency's response to the DETR on the Baker Associates report.
