About SWEEP

Funded by NERC, the South West Partnership for Environment and Economic Prosperity (SWEEP) is a 5-year collaboration between the Universities of Exeter, Plymouth and Plymouth Marine Laboratory with a large group of highly-engaged businesses, policy makers, NGOs, environmental charities and community partners.

We work together to champion the inclusion of the natural environment at the heart of economic and policy decision-making, and support the region’s decision-makers adopt a Natural Capital approach through the development of bespoke guidance, modelling and mapping tools.

SWEEP is facilitating changes to our partners’ decision-making culture and capabilities, contributing to the improvement of policies and management plans, and influencing significant regional investments for the good of both the environment and the economy.
