Abstract

Regulators, enforcers, and policy implementers involved in environment protection need help to do their work. That help comes from many places. Very rarely is there sufficient resource in environmental regulatory agencies, in terms of staff, material, toolkits, empowerment, or the capital to do the job they or their critics see as necessary. There are many sources of help. They include but are not limited to other regulators, parallel or partner organisations and individuals, including governments, national and local, ‘peak’1 trade or industry bodies, specialist non-governmental organisations (NGOs), academics, and management consultants.
