            Environmental and Resource Management Law
              

            Environmental and Resource Management Law (Paperback, 7th edition)

            Environmental and resource management law is a major component of legal practice. It is also relevant to the work of many other professions, those engaged in industry or working in central or local government and community groups. A key factor in the development of the law was th...e introduction of two pieces of legislation - the Resource Management Act 1991, and the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act 1996. Both Acts have been amended frequently since their enactment. Other legislation and central government initiatives continue to affect practice in the field. Examples include actions taken under the Climate Change Response Act 2002 and the enactment of the Environmental Protection Authority Act 2011; the Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act 2011; the Exclusive Economic Zone and Continental Shelf (Environmental Effects) Act 2012; and the Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga Act 2014. The Courts, including the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court, have issued decisions influencing the interpretation and application of our environmental laws in a significant manner. This book is intended primarily for legal practitioners and other people working in the environmental and resource management law field, but will also be useful for students, since it covers the same ground as many environmental and resource management law courses taught in New Zealand universities and other educational institutions.

            Dementia: The Basics provides the reader with a clear and compassionate introduction to dementia and an accessible guide to dealing with different parts of the dementia journey, from pre-diagnosis and diagnosis to post-diagnostic support, increasing care needs and end of life car...e. Co-authored by an academic, a person living with dementia and a family carer, the book endeavours to raise awareness of dementia, challenge stereotypical and negative ideas about what it means to have dementia and champion a society where people living with dementia can be active as they wish for as long as possible. The authors present an overview of current research at each step of the dementia journey as well as including knowledge from lived experience, enhancing understanding and challenging thinking about what it might be like to live with a diagnosis or to care for a loved one. As a whole, the book emphasises the importance of prioritising the person living with dementia, as well as considering the impact of what any initiative or action might mean for them, their families and their care supporters. Offering both an accessible introduction to dementia and practical tools, this book will be ideal for health and social care professionals, students of social care, healthcare and nursing, people with dementia, carers, and anyone wanting to understand more about the condition.

            This book analyses water allocation law and policy in New Zealand and offers a comparative analysis with Australia. In New Zealand it is generally accepted that water allocation law has failed to be adequately addressed and New Zealand is now faced with the problem of over-alloca...tion in many catchments. In comparison, Australia has extensive experience in reforming its water law and policy over the last twenty years. This book provides a comparative and critical analysis of the lessons that New Zealand can learn from the Australian experience and offers guidance for the improvement of water allocation outcomes in New Zealand. Starting with the background of water allocation law and policy in New Zealand, the book traces the evolution of legal policies, including the 1967 Water and Soil Conservation Act and the 1991 Resource Management Act, and examines the role they have played in current water allocation issues. The book situates these findings within global challenges, such as the impact of climate change, and the global scarcity of and increasing demand for freshwater resources. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars researching water law and policy, natural resource management and environmental law more broadly. It was also be of use to policymakers and professional involved in developing and implementing water allocation laws and policies.

            This volume examines environmental law and governance in the Pacific, focussing on the emerging challenges this region faces. The Pacific is home to some of the world's most astonishing biological and cultural diversity. At the same time, Pacific Island nations are economically a...nd technically under-resourced in the face of tremendous environmental challenges. Destructive weather events, ocean acidification, mining, logging, overfishing and pollution increasingly degrade ecosystems and affect fishing, farming and other cultural practices of Pacific Islanders. Accordingly, there is an urgent need to understand and analyse the role of law and governance in responding to these pressures in the Pacific. Drawing on academic and practitioner expertise from the Pacific region, as well as Europe and the United States, this unique collection navigates the major environmental law and governance challenges of the present and future of the Pacific. Fourteen Pacific Island countries, including the Cook Islands, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Samoa, and a broad range of themes, such as deep-sea mining, fisheries, protected areas, heritage, endangered species, human rights and access to justice, are addressed in the volume, thus providing a truly comprehensive and state of the art overview of environmental law and governance within specific jurisdictions as well as across the Pacific region as a whole. This volume will be essential reading for students and scholars interested in environmental law and governance in the Pacific region, as well as policymakers, practitioners and NGOs involved in the development and implementation of environmental law and policy.
