Policymeasures.com is an open development resource for information related to the design, use and analysis of policies and measures for the environment.

The scope and detail of the content in this resource is formatted to target a range of interests from the casual browser to the specialist modeller. The site was launched in a beta testing phase and has been extended and developed moderately since that initial launch. Presently the site is viewed as a complete framework for content development, but the level of content remains a challenge for the future phases of work.  In the main navigation bar above you can jump straight to the browsing menus for the policy measures database, the related reading resources section, and a detailed search menu.
