"Late Lessons from Early Warnings: Science, Precaution, Innovation."
New report: EEA Report No 1/2013 http://www.eea.europa.eu/publications/late-lessons-2
The 2013 Late lessons from early warnings report is the
second of its type produced by the European Environment Agency (EEA) in
collaboration with a broad range of external authors and peer reviewers.
The case studies across both volumes of Late lessons from early
warnings cover a diverse range of chemical and technological
innovations, and highlight a number of systemic problems. The 'Late
Lessons Project' illustrates how damaging and costly the misuse or
neglect of the precautionary principle can be, using case studies and a
synthesis of the lessons to be learned and applied to maximising
innovations whilst minimising harms.
