The second edition of this highly successful text provides an extensively updated, authoritative, international review of environmental impact assessment (EIA).  The book compares systems used in the USA, UK, the Netherlands, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and (new in this edition) South Africa.

EIA has become a vital means of evaluating the likely consequences of proposed major actions which will significantly affect the environment and, in this internationally cited text, successive chapters discuss the various steps of the EIA process.  Each chapter includes an introductory discussion of approaches to achieving the step,  appropriate evaluation criteria, and an analysis of  its treatment in each of the seven national systems.

Key features:

  • provides a unique introduction to the nature and history of EIA

  • explores the nature of best practice in EIA

  • describes national EIA procedures in detail

  • indicates the direction of future development in EIA

  • employs an evaluative approach applicable to any EIA system

  • discusses the rapidly emerging field of strategic environmental assessment
