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 evolving and is formatted to target a range of interests from the casual browser to the specialist modeller. The site was launched in 2011 in a beta testing phase and has been extended and developed moderately throughout 2012 and 2013. 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. It is also recommended to register and get involved in developing the resource, or to subscribe to our mailing list to keep in touch with the progress of the initiative.

The information provided may be the subject of ongoing work or opinion. As such users should be aware that the content is evolving in response to scientific progress, empirical research and contemporary perspectives.
