The Marine Management Organisation’s (MMO) Evidence Strategy 2015 to 2020, sets out our evidence requirements and how they will be delivered over the next five years, increasing access to high quality research and improving understanding of the marine environment. Part 1 of the strategy was published in July 2015. It identifies and prioritises evidence gaps and sets out existing delivery functions and the associated evidence base for these functions. Part 2 of the strategy was published August 2016. It sets out how knowledge exchange, partnership and influencing research will be used to deliver our future evidence requirements. The update pertains to, among other things, marine litter and environmental impact assessments (EIAs).
