  • Description:
    "The precautionary principle is a framework for governments to develop and evaluate health and environmental laws. Instead of the traditional question of, "How much harm is allowable?" the precautionary principle asks, "How little harm is possible?" The principle allows lawmakers to take precautionary measures when science cannot yet fully establish a cause-​and-​effect relationship, but can provide reasonable evidence of harm. This publication is intended to help coastal communities to incorporate ecosystem-based management and sustainable development principles into planning and management"--National Sea Grant Digital Library publication website.
