EU Environmental Directives Post Brexit

    Press/Media: Blogs and social media

    Description

    • Brexit marks a number of unprecedented challenges, one of which is the potential transposition of the EU’s Environmental Directives into UK Law and gives a chance to review some EU Directives such as the Water Framework Directive.
    • Classification of water bodies on a national basis could result in a strategic move to de-centralise water quality standardisation and classification. 
    • The proposal by the UK Government to introduce a 25-year plan for the natural environment raises many questions.
    • Given that funding for environmental compliance, monitoring and regulation could be reduced, this is an opportunity to further participatory or inclusive science.
