At any one time, Defra is responsible for around 1000

as projects on economic analysis, monitoring, testing and surveillance
activities. They have been commissioned to provide evidence which underpins
Defra’s policy formulation and development.
Details of all these Defra funded projects are available

completed and ongoing projects (e.g. title, cost, contractor, duration,
description, reports, etc) and is accessible though the menus on the left.
