    3. 5. Why work with the public…?
    4. 7. Whose job is it anyway?

Knowledge Brokers <ul><li>Research Councils </li></ul><ul><li>Policy Advisors </li></ul><ul><li>Private Sector (MORI) </li></ul><ul><li>Universities??? </li></ul><ul><li>Third Sector </li></ul><ul><li>Publics </li></ul><ul><li>Whose science counts? </li></ul>“… Britons are fattest people in Europe”
    6. 9. What counts as evidence? not everything that can be counted counts, not everything that counts can be counted
    7. 10. Social justice principles Rights Needs Deserts Merit Equality Procedural justice Principles Moral claims Fair process Fair outcome Distributive justice
    8. 11. Evidence: Flood Risk & River Quality <ul><li>The most deprived communities in society are 62% more likely to be living in areas at high risk of tidal flooding , and are more likely to be less aware of the risk, less well prepared and suffer the greatest losses and health effects. </li></ul><ul><li>There are eight times more people in the most deprived 10% of the population living in tidal floodplains than the least deprived 10% </li></ul><ul><li>1/4 of rented households are not insured, average costs to a household are estimated to average £28K+ for recovery </li></ul><ul><li>River water quality is worse in the most deprived areas in England, where up to 50% of watercourses are extensively modified, providing less natural habitats for wildlife. </li></ul>
    9. 12. Prediction & Reaction: heat waves
    10. 13. Critical Infrastructure
    11. 14. NO 2 concentrated in urban, deprived areas and transport routes

    13. 16. we know that people in deprived areas experience greater exposure to: <ul><li>Air pollution </li></ul><ul><li>Sea flooding </li></ul><ul><li>Close proximity to PPC and waste management sites </li></ul><ul><li>Poor river water quality </li></ul>
    14. 17. Developing our understanding: cumulative environmental impacts Single Exposure (A ) Single Exposure (B) Single Exposure (C ) Single Exposure (B) Single Exposure (C) Outcome Time Multiple and Cumulative Single Exposure (A) Multiple and Cumulative Outcome Outcome
