Abstract

The report is the product of a rapid research and evidence review undertaken by the Sustainable Development Research Network (SDRN) to assist officials across government better understand the key evidence, issues and possible policy interventions for tackling environmental inequalities in the UK. The key objective of the review was to summarise the evidence for environmental inequalities and injustice in the UK in relation to 21 topic areas identified as relevant by Defra. For each topic, evidence has been summarised on patterns of social distribution, impacts on social or economic outcomes, externalised costs, the causation of inequalities and policy interventions to address these. The 21 topics are divided into four groups: - Immediate locality front door issues, - Wider service issues, - Planning infrastructure and development issues - Multiple environmental deprivation
