Overview

Introduction to Environmental Impact Assessment provides students and practitioners with a clearly structured overview of the subject, as well as critical analysis and support for further studies. Written by three authors with extensive research, training and practical experience in EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment), the book covers the latest EIA legislation, guidance and good practice.

This edition updates essential information on:

• the evolving nature of EIA
• experience of the implementation of the changing EU and UK EIA procedures
• best practice in the EIA process
• other key issues in the process, explored in an extended case studies section
• comparative EIA systems worldwide
• development of SEA/SA legislation and practice
• prospects for the future of EIA.

Although the book’s focus is on the UK and the EU, the principles and techniques it describes are applicable internationally. With colour images and a new modern design, the book provides an essential introduction to EIA for undergraduate and postgraduate students on planning courses, as well as those studying environmental management and policy, environmental sciences, geography and the built environment. Planners, developers, community groups and decision-makers in government and business will also welcome the book as an effective way to get to grips with this important and evolving subject that affects a wide range of development projects.
