A Policy Approach That Works

Strategic Planning in Environmental Regulation introduces an approach to environmental regulatory planning founded on a creative, interactive relationship between business and government.

The concept of strategic regulatory planning that the book introduces provides a model for designing more effective environmental regulation.
