What's New ... Scott invited as EU expert for damage assessment workshop in China

2014.04.03. The EU-China Environmental Governance project aims to improve China’s capacity to respond to environmental challenges. To assist the Chinese with implementing environmental damage assessment regulations — i.e., measuring environmental damages from pollution and providing fair and equitable compensation to victims — the Swedish Consultancy IVL organized a workshop in Guiyang, China in April. Scott was invited as the EU technical expert and provided three presentations during the workshop, sharing his experience with damage assessment methodology from similar US and EU laws. The workshop provided technical guidance as the Chinese embark on an ambitious effort to improve their citizens’ access to environmental justice. Read more about the project and workshop.
