About this book

The Australian Environmental Review says about this book:'...Applying the Precautionary Principle is a step-by-step guide to the practice...included [are] numerous worked examples of the precautionary principle at work to further enhance the understanding of the concept...ideal for environmental planning and development decision makers in both public and private sectors, students who increasingly need to set their technical and professional education in the context of ecologically sustainable development and community groups and lobbyists who want an understanding of the principle, how it can be applied and its potential influence on decision makers.'
