Our work is guided by our strategy and the priorities of the UK
Government and devolved administrations.
Each year the Joint Committee sets out the JNCC’s priorities
and work programmes for the next year in a detailed Business
Plan. It is based on agreed Government funding and anticipated
external income. Business Plans are subject to the approval of
Ministers in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
(Defra), the Scottish Government, the Welsh Assembly Government and
the Department of the Environment in Northern Ireland.
