This book challenges the prevailing assumption that Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) should be structured around a unitary EIA process. The book begins by identifying, through a scenario, eight recurrent problems in EIA practice. The characteristics of multiple variations of conventional EIA processes, at both the regulatory and applied levels, are then presented. The residual problems that remain after the conventional processes are described and assessed providing the springboard for a description and analysis of eight alternative EIA processes.

From the Back Cover:

Take the EIA challenge:

Eight scenarios show you how to design and implement more effective EIA processes

When a proposed action threatens the physical, biological, social, or economic environment, a thorough assessment is done and measures are identified to prevent and offset the adverse environmental impacts. This practice is called an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), which has regularly been treated, studied, and practiced as a singular process . . . until now.

Environmental Impact Assessment challenges the deep-rooted assumption that EIA should be structured around a unitary assessment process. In this groundbreaking new book, author David Lawrence addresses eight recurrent problems in EIA practice, describes and assesses residual problems, and provides details to solve these persistent problems.

Developed to help you cope with the many competing demands and recurrent problems encountered in your day-to-day work, Environmental Impact Assessment:

  • Discusses conventional choices for controlling and shaping the EIA process
  • Shows how each problem-reducing process would operate at the regulatory level as well as at the applied level
  • Addresses how well each process satisfies ideal EIA process characteristics
  • Offers summary overviews after each analysis
  • Demonstrates links between the conceptual analysis and practice examples
  • Examines how to link and combine EIA processes to operate in situations with multiple, overlapping problems
  • Compares requirements in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia

About the Author:

DAVID P. LAWRENCE, PhD, has been an EIA practitioner for more than twenty-five years and is currently President of Lawrence Environmental. He is also a member of the Planning Institute of British Columbia, the International Association for Impact Assessment, and the National Association of Environmental Professionals.
