Explanation:
possible and harmful roles of cloning in the medical, criminal, environmental and agricultural environments

This should straighten out the other answers somewhat. Grammar in this sentence needs to be closely examined.

If you do not want to be redundant, I suggest to use "fields" instead of "environments", but watch out, those two words are not synonyms.

When we are talking about an environment, we mean a workplace, in this case. On the other hand, when we are talking about a field, we would thereby mean an industry or community, which is not always linked to a workplace.

Possible harmful roles of cloning in the medical, criminal, environmental and agricultural settings


Explanation:
my answer is very similar to the others

I don't think you need to say "possible *and* harmful"

You might consider not using the word roles:

Possible harmful effects of cloning in the ... settings
Possible harmful consequences of cloning in the ... settings
Possible harm caused by the use of cloning in the ... settings.

etc.

neutral  ViktoriaG: Aren't repercussions always negative?
15 hrs
  -> No, they're not: "repercussion: action set in motion by an event or action, often very remote." The term "positive repercussions" is frequently heard, as is "positive and negative repercussions."
