Parliamentary Committees and All Party Parliamentary Groups play a key role in scrutinising, evaluating and influencing government policy. Our active involvement with these groups helps us to ensure that an integrated approach to environmental, social and cultural issues is maintained throughout Government policy. Increasing CIWEM’s profile among parliamentarians, departments, committees, think tanks and groups help us to achieve this. Actively engaging with parliamentarians is vital to the ability of CIWEM to influence decision makers and promote policy and regulation which is effective in driving sustainability.
If you’d like to get involved in any of our policy and technical work there are many opportunities to join a community related to your area of expertise.

The most important thing we can do is listen to the experts... We do not use CIWEM enough; its 10,000 real experts are at the beck and call of the Government, the Opposition, companies and local authorities.
