Annotation: EA additional title info: Sustainable Development Series No. 14
This seminar was organised jointly by the Environment Agency and the ESRC Global Environment Agency to explore different ways of assessing environmental value. The Agencys interest in this topic stems from its strategic approach to the environment and the legislative background to its activities. Four approaches frame the Environment Agencys strategy: the state of the environment; pressures on the environment; risks and values; and the Agencys own actions. Pressures on the natural environment are always changing as a result of stresses and strains including: natural forces; societal influences; abstractions and removals; releases and discharges; waste arisings and disposals; and compliance and illegal practices.
