Understanding US Land Use and Environmental Policy

What is it about?

Provides the US national interpretation of global environmental regulation enacted at the national, state and local level.

Why is it important?

The chapter demonstrates the chain of global policy that acts as a foundation to US national environmental policy. Establishes the difficulty of translation to lower level of policy through case studies of the state of California and the City of Chicago but also recommends ways to fill the gaps.
