9780124081291: Evaluating Environmental and Social Impact Assessment in Developing Countries

Evaluating Environmental and Social Impact Assessment in Developing Countries is a valuable reference book for practitioners and researchers conducting research in and developing studies on environmental science and management and environmental and social impact assessment. The book’s authors have developed and tested a new framework to evaluate environmental impact assessment (EIA) systems that may be adopted by most developing countries with EIA experience. Application of this framework will help determine if the EIA is achieving its intended goal of sustainable development in these countries. It also explains the reasons behind the strengths and weaknesses from which the development practitioners and international development partners can take lessons. This book will help the reader answer such questions as "What are the best forms of public participation?" and "How do we measure contributions to EIA procedure?" since it is based on direct experiences from a developing country that is struggling with many of these issues. Evaluating Environmental and Social Impact Assessment in Developing Countries provides further understanding of appropriate tools to evaluate environmental and social impacts of development initiatives especially in developing countries.

- Demonstrates the development of an integrated holistic method that presents new research in the field

- Offers a thorough analytical assessment of an EIA system in a developing country

- Presents valuable insights into how developing countries are coping with the new phenomenon of public participation and involvement in environmental decision making and what methods and techniques have been successful

From the Back Cover:

Evaluating Environmental and Social Impact Assessment in Developing Countries uses a novel and integrated approach to evaluate the effectiveness of environmental and social impact assessment systems, especially in developing countries. Bangladesh is presented as a case study. Application of this framework and lessons learned from Bangladesh will help determine whether the environmental impact assessment (EIA) is achieving its intended goal of sustainable development in developing countries.

Key features:

  • Presents valuable insights into how developing countries are coping with the new phenomenon of public participation and involvement in environmental decision making and which methods and techniques have been successful
  • Critically analyzes all aspects of the EIA procedure, including legislative and administrative status, implementation of EIA, and post-EIA follow-up
  • Explains the reasons behind the strengths and weaknesses of EIA and SIA from which development practitioners and international development partners can learn lessons
