Horizon Scanning: 2014 BES Legislative Scan – What are the forthcoming legislative issues of interest to ecologists and conservationists in 2014?

Horizon Scanning: 2014 BES Legislative Scan – What are the forthcoming legislative issues of interest to ecologists and conservationists in 2014?

This is the fourth review of environmental legislation likely to occur on a global scale, in the European Union, and in the United Kingdom and its constituent countries. Since this series of reviews began in 2011 the authors remark that policies are increasingly being directed towards the ‘growth agenda’, with a concomitant emphasis on research that is of relevance to business.

This review series is aimed at researchers to make them more aware of the legislative framework that may influence their research, so they can carry out relevant work, be aware of changes that may impact on their work, or engage in consultation processes. The previous three reviews are all available on the CCI resources page.
