The Natural Capital Committee met on 23 May and has begun to formulate a work programme around the terms of its remit. This is:

1. Advice on when, where and how natural assets are being used unsustainably.

2. Advice on how government should prioritise action.

3. Advice on research priorities to improve future advice.

The work programme is being developed and will be published as soon as it is ready.
