Commissioned literature review on the key causes, impacts and controls for antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the environment that are relevant to Scotland. The review summarises what is currently known about the impact of AMR on the environment and the nature of existing controls in Scotland.
The review has highlighted gaps in the evidence base around the impact of AMR on the environment itself and that further research in this area is needed. Environmental Standards Scotland (ESS) will share the findings and evidence gaps with relevant organisations who can influence potential future research to fill evidence gaps.
