    • UKCEH is responsible for Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry Inventory (LULUCF)
  • Natural Capital Accounts
    • Economic value of soils and costs of degradation
    • UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicators, Land Degradation and Soil Carbon
  • Pollution Risk Mapping & Environmental Policy Outcomes
    • Spatial maps of pollutants to help target actions (e.g. pesticides; nanoparticles; plastics)
  • BREXIT and farmer payments (i.e. Common Agricultural Policy - CAP)
    • Major role in monitoring impact of current agri-environment scheme and developing CAP replacement.
