Contemporary Issues in Environmental Law and Policy is a unique interdisciplinary study on the diverse challenges facing environmental law today. It presents an analytical appraisal of the unique blend of regulation, theory, science and policy that are the foundations of environmental law, and examines fundamental issues likely to dictate the future direction of this fascinating field both in both developed and developing countries. The book explores how law and policymaking operate within defined areas of environmental law within the UK and EU as well as how global issues are relevant. It also shows that it is equally important to examine and understand the role, value and contribution of law, as well as circumstances where law may not be particularly relevant in addressing contemporary environmental problems. Taking into account the Kyoto Treaty as well as Cacun, the book illustrates how regulation and policy contribute to environmental protection, discusses the challenges involved in achieving future improvement, and provides a basis for further research in the field.

Presented in a clear and analytical style, this important work demonstrates how environmental law and science may best be able to address the key issues facing the environment in the 21st century. As such, it will prove invaluable to environmental policymakers and to students, academics and researchers specialising in law, economics or the environment.
