Horizon Scanning: 2015 BES Legislative Scan – What are the forthcoming legislative issues of interest to ecologists and conservationists in 2015?

Horizon Scanning: 2015 BES Legislative Scan – What are the forthcoming legislative issues of interest to ecologists and conservationists in 2015?

This is our fifth assessment of the forthcoming legislation that is likely to have consequences for the environment and for ecologists. As before, we consider global scale issues, issues in the European Union, and those both in the United Kingdom and constituent countries. Our objectives have been to inform researchers and practitioners of the forthcoming changes. These could provide opportunities and have implications for future work. We know that policy advisers and others in Government and the agencies have also found this assessment useful. Opportunities exist for ecologists and other researchers, either as individuals or in an institutional capacity, to contribute to the consultations held by both Westminster and the devolved governments. 

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. Previous reviews are all available on the CCI resources page.
