It is well known that components of the environment do not respect legal boundaries. Water flows and crosses national, provincial, territorial and private land boundaries. Likewise, air and species are not contained by legal boundaries. This means that activities on a single parcel of land have the potential to impact the water, air and biodiversity that is shared globally. Such activities may also impact surrounding lands and their owners (whether private or public).
So how does an EBR, which is focused on components of the environment, affect landowners and those with interests in land? Will an EBR inevitably lead to further regulation of private land use? Or will an EBR provide enhanced tools to protect a person’s interests in land?
