The Joint Water Evidence Group (JWEG) was formed in 2011 and evolved into Joint Water Evidence Programme (JWEP) on 1 April 2016.

Our aim is for a healthy water and wetland environment in England, which delivers the ecosystems services required by society and helps provide resilience to climate change and other pressures.

JWEP brings together land and water evidence teams from across Defra, the Environment Agency, Natural England and the Forestry Commission (England). We strive to work better together on topics of common interest and to make better use of the available evidence in land and water management.

Our goals and approach are set out in our Plan to Enhance Collaborative Working.

JWEP were Winners of Defra Chief Scientists Award for Excellence in Multidisciplinary Working (2012).

JWEP is cited in Defra's Evidence Investment Strategy (June 2014) as an exemplar for effective joined-up working across Defra and partner organisations.
