Methods of Environmental Impact Assessment / Edition 2 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Taylor & Francis
A practical, up-to-date explanation and guide to how EIAs are, and should be, carried out for specific environmental components (e.g. air, water, ecological systems, and socio-economic systems). For each component, it includes a discussion of relevant regulations and standards, how baseline surveys are conducted, how impact predictions are made, what mitigation measures can be used, how the effectiveness of such measures should be monitored, and the limitations of the methods. This new edition has a new second part, consisting of chapters on "cross-cutting" methods that can be applied to, and can often facilitate integration between, many of the environmental components discussed in the first part.
