  • Over the coming decade climate change and global population growth will result in environmental resources becoming scarcer and economically more valuable. Many properties will be under threat from climate change. Economics will increasingly give monetary values to eco-services. In Europe the Aarhus Convention (and the three pillars of access to environmental information, public participation in environmental decision-making and access to justice) will mean that more environmental data is made available. All of these fundamental drivers will mean that for governments, companies and individuals understanding and assessing environmental risks will become increasingly vital.
