Austin L, Cardesa Salzmann A, Gemmell C, Hughes J, Savaresi A & Reid C (2018) Report by the Roundtable on Environment and Climate Change on Environmental Governance in Scotland on the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. Scottish Government. Scotland. http://www.gov.scot/Publications/2018/06/2221
This study commissioned by the Scottish Government reviews possible issues relating to future environmental governance in Scotland post-Brexit. The expert group drafting this report was tasked to look at Scotland’s policy and governance needs and to the main issues arising as a result of Brexit. The report identifies key areas where there is a risk of disadvantage without intervention, namely: access to expertise in professional policy and practice networks; access to skills; and oversight mechanisms provided by the Commission and the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) around verifying compliance with and enforcement of environmental law.
