Perspectives on the Precautionary Principle

Front Cover
Ronnie Harding, Elizabeth Charlotte Fisher
Federation Press, 1999 - Environmental engineering - 320 pages
Perspectives offers the Australian experience in environmental management, influenced by challenges arising from an economy which is strongly natural resource based, operating in ecosystems which are acknowledged as both sensitive and unique and which rank Australia as the only developed nation among the 12 'mega-diverse' (in terms of biodiversity) regions of the world. Whilst covering a range of disciplinary and management perspectives, Perspectives is especially strong in the legal, science and risk-uncertainty areas. It will be of interest to academics, and tertiary level students from a wide range of disciplines - law, science, economics, engineering, social science and policy and political science.
