Call for papers (246th ACS Meeting): Science-based policy development

Please consider submitting a presentation for inclusion in this symposium:

Title:“Science-based policy development in the environment, food, health and transport sectors”.

Summary: This one-day symposium will explore the interaction between science and policy development in the regulation of the environment, food, health and transport. It will take the form of a series of case studies illustrating the impact of science on policy development. The controversy surrounding the science behind the study of global warning and the resulting focus on the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions by international agreement and by national and international regulation is an example of such an area where science and policy development are inextricably intertwined. The symposium will seek to identify other areas where science-based policy development is of increasing importance.
