The aim of this guide is to provide its readers with a pragmatic overview of the law and practice of environment law across a variety of jurisdictions.

Each chapter of this guide provides information about the current issues affecting the environment in a particular country and addresses topics such as permits, environmental impact assessments, contamination of soil and groundwater, regulatory regimes for waste and climate change as well as insight and opinion on the most common issues in their respective country.

The Q&A template for each chapter has been provided by Paul Davies of Latham & Watkins.
