    Abstract

    This policy brief identifies risks and opportunities for nature protection in Scotland, post-Brexit, on the basis of key facts and legal considerations in relation to: the benefits and costs of nature protection, including of the EU's nature protection framework; the effects of EU law on nature protection in the UK; the links between nature protection law, agriculture and fisheries; other international mechanisms and networks that can support nature conservation in Scotland; and key areas (related to human rights) where Scotland could go above EU nature protection legal standards.
