Project Team

The REMEDE project involves 15 partners from 8 EU Member States (including 2 New Member States), Norway and the USA. The project team combines the expertise of:

  • Ecologists for the understanding of environmental damage and ecosystem function;
  • Economists with expertise on assessing the public’s preferences for natural resources; and
  • Lawyers familiar with the legal context of the Environmental Liability Directive, Habitats and EIA Directives in particular, and environmental liability regimes in the US and the EU Member States in general.

The project Consortium team has considerable experience working with the development and implementation of environmental liability regimes – specifically in the context of natural resource damage assessment. Members of the Consortium have been directly involved in all aspects of the development and application of resource equivalency methods in the United States, Europe and Latin America (with a portfolio of over 50 damage assessments), and also in the development and implementation of the Environmental Liability Directive, and Habitats and EIA Directives. Members of the Consortium Partners also have extensive experience of working together in several related projects and as members of specialist networks. In addition, three team members (Ece Ozdemiroglu of eftec, Jonathan Cox of Jonathan Cox Associates and Edward Brans of PDRF) wrote one of the background documents to the Environmental Liability Directive that formed the basis of its Annex II.
