Memorandum 113

Supplementary submission from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

  EO Forum is a gathering of UK government departments and agencies interested in the uses and applications of Earth observation to their problems. The Forum is non-executive and simply provides a means to share information about individual strategies and activities and look for common approaches/shared activities. Representation is at a relatively operational level and we are considering whether it could become a more formal body.

  Current representation includes Defra, Scottish Executive, Welsh Assembly, Forestry Commission, Environment Agency, Natural England, Joint Nature Conservation Committee, Countryside Council for Wales, Scottish Natural Heritage, English Heritage, Highways Agency, British National Space Centre, Cefas, Lancaster County Council. Membership is open to any public body.
