Legislation and Regulation Aren't Enough:
Challenges in Implementation of Environmental Protection Statutes

Wednesday, May 7, 2008

Resources for the Future
1616 P St. NW
Washington, DC 20036

Legislation and regulation are but the first steps in protecting natural resources and the environment, and neither ensures compliance, enforcement, nor effective results. This panel convenes scholars who have been awarded RFF's Fellowships in Environmental Regulatory Implementation. Speakers will highlight lessons learned from several case studies, including use of performance and management standards, command and control approaches, and audit policy.
