Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This book will prove to be an invaluable reference and guide for EIA practitioners in industry, consultancies and regulatory agencies, as well as in the education and training sector'
Paula Caldwell, Director General, Environmental Protection Service, Environment Canada

'This book is a must-have tool for impact assessment professionals, academics, regulators and proponents working on projects of all scales in all jurisdictions'

'This edited text is a valuable addition to the rapidly growing guidance documentation on environmental impact assessment (EIA) and strategic environmental assessment (SEA)... the balanced approach adopted by the authors means that the text is likely to be of interest to a mixed readership. The authors successfully achieve the somewhat daunting task of providing specialist technical insight whilst at the same time establishing clear linkages with broader environmental planning debates.'
Adam Barker, School of Environment and Development, University of Manchester. Journal of Environmental Planning and Management, Vol. 49, No. 3, 471 - 474, May 2006

'Assessing Impact is written for the practitioner. I expect that it ill be read eagerly by those who want to make sure that EIA and SEA make substantial contributions to ESD.'
Ian Thomas, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia Journal of Environmental management, March 2005
