About the product

Below the grand structural framework of anlyses there is an enormous amount which can be and is being done in the formalization and harmonization of tests, decision making procedures and the use and documentation of expert judgement. This paper addresses the uncertainties and imperfection of scientific information for the shaping of environmental policy and how a suite of decision tools, under the broad title of 'environmental risk assessment' is being developed to assist decision making.
