The formation and evolution of planets is intimately related to the physical conditions, the evolution and the dispersal of their natal planet forming disc. In this talk I will summarise the basics behind photoevaporation models of disc dispersal, emphasising some of their expected influence on planet formation and migration. I will also focus on the predictive aspects of current models and how well they compare with current observations.
