How Better Data Helps Create Better Places for People and Wildlife

Presented by

Nick Keen, Data Governance Lead at Environment Agency

About this talk

The Environment Agency works to create better places for people and wildlife, and support sustainable development within England. We’re responsible for: · regulating major industry and waste · treatment of contaminated land · water quality and resources · fisheries · inland river, estuary and harbour navigations · conservation and ecology · managing the risk of flooding from main rivers, reservoirs, estuaries and the sea. Good Data governance is especially important for the Environment Agency and we have millions of people depending on our data and information. The talk will show how we undertake data governance and measure our performance; and how this supports our transition to an Open Data organisation
