Ethical, Legal, and Policy Aspects of Environment Restoration

Code: ER314
Apply this course towards: Restoration of Natural Systems - Certificate, Restoration of Natural Systems - Diploma

Course description

Environmental restoration is a value-laden activity. It takes place within a societal framework of ethics, laws and politics. Ethics influence which actions are considered appropriate by society, while laws determine what is legally required or permissible and policies govern how things are done. What is ecologically desirable is not always socially acceptable.

This course considers the philosophy and ethics of restoration and introduces the legal and policy frameworks in which environmental restoration takes place, and which play a critical role in dealing with the practical issues of carrying out a restoration project.
