This practical guide of European legislation on environment, making it accessible to practitioners, is published by the European Environmental Bureau (EEB).
After a short history of the policy strategies, the EEB Handbook deals with the sectoral legislation and the horizontal legislation.
In 'Setting the objectives, targets and timetables for the sectoral legislation' (Chapter 3), the EEB Handbook discusses nature protection, air, waste and water.
'Providing tools and measures' (Chapter 4) assesses at length the citizens' right to know, measures on production, and measures on products.
The EEB Handbook is an essential tool for anyone dealing with the environment in the European Union. The EEB is a federation of 140 citizens' organizations.
