Horizon scanning

The future environment - scanning for uncertainty

ERFF’s Horizon Scanning work is moving forward with the first in a series of workshops on environmental issues which could impact on the UK’s interests over the next 20 years.

Natural England led the workshop on “Changing Ecosystems” which is one of 11 dimensions of uncertainty identified by ERFF and published in a one page leaflet - “The Future Environment”.
