Brexit and the Environment: Challenges Lying Ahead

First paragraph: Brexit’s implications for environmental law-making and enforcement in the UK are symptomatic of the challenges associated with breaking away from the EU. As I have already argued elsewhere, while nobody suggests that after Brexit the UK will turn into a lawless land, the loss of the EU’s comparatively stable regulatory, enforcement and governance frameworks requires that these be somehow replaced, within a relatively short time frame. The same applies to EU funding and cooperation programmes that, for good or ill, presently provide the lifeblood of several UK conservation and research initiatives.
