New magazine on evidence-based environmental management

In a new magazine from the Mistra Council for Evidence-Based Environmental Management (Mistra EviEM), readers can find out how systematic reviews enable environmental measures to be based on the best research findings. The magazine also presents the need for better data to be provided for decision-makers, as well as the knowledge that emerged from a major review of wetlands as phosphorus and nitrogen traps.

The new magazine, Knowledge & Change, includes personal interviews, facts and reports on knowledge for better environmental management. The publication was developed by the Mistra Council for Evidence-Based Environmental Management (Mistra EviEM) after the first international conference on evidence-based environmental management in August 2016. The first issue contains an interview with Andrew Pullin, for example. It was Pullin who coined the term ‘evidence-based environmental management’ and his work has involved establishing activities to promote scientifically based environmental management.

Decision-makers, too, are interviewed on how they see the need for scientific documentation. Other topics covered are opportunities for, and obstacles to, cross-border research collaboration and how best to convey the importance of basing environmental management on scientific knowledge. Mistra EviEM’s systematic review of wetlands as phosphorus and nitrogen traps to reduce eutrophication is also discussed.
