This meeting was part of a project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council headed by Professor Robert Lee at Birmingham University. The broad aims of the project is to identify potential models for addressing existing weaknesses within the current framework for environmental regulation and the available methods to improve effectiveness and efficiency and therefore enable the delivery of sustainable development. The objectives of the project are to: a) Compare and contrast different framework international models in order to improve consistency, clarity and coherence; b) Assess the pros and cons of different models in relation to addressing the issues outlined in (a) and; c) Structure a potential legal framework that can – i. deliver an integrated approach to sustainable development, which is flexible and streamlined; and ii. provide a homogenous purpose; d) Provide evidence for policy makers on models that would enable smarter regulation based on the potential for the simplification and modernisation of the framework for environmental legislation. This event was the by-invitation workshop which was agreed as part of the project’s methodology to consider and to further the project’s findings.
