We can assist our clients in establishing clear, coherent and compatible legal and regulatory systems to safeguard public interests. The shift from restrictive command and control legislation supporting control regimes towards establishing frameworks based upon education, information and financial incentives are not easy concepts to materialise within legal statutes and require regulatory assessments at national, district and village levels of governance.
In support of new forest laws governing natural resources, to assist with the implementation of policies and programmes, innovative regulations and guidelines will be required. Individually-tailored guidance on the operational implications of regulatory change requires an in-depth knowledge of legal obligations of international and national scope. Our team can help develop national guidelines, methodology’s, approaches and tools needed for the introduction and uptake of new regulatory measures in the areas of commercial production, collaborative management, decentralized planning, and protected area planning.
