The Environment Multi-jurisdictional Guide combines practical information on topical cross-border environment issues and country-specific Q&As on environment law and practice. Whether you are looking for practical information on environmental legislation and regulatory authorities, permitting regimes for water or air pollution, or national targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the Q&As give an invaluable structured overview of the key issues, legal system and laws in multiple jurisdictions around the world.
Clifford Chance and Practical Law would like to thank Kevin Green, Growth Market Team Senior Counsel of IBM Middle East and Africa, for his Foreword to this guide. He provides an in-house insight into the impact of environmental laws and the importance of compliance with them.
