Methods of Environmental Impact Assessment Summary


This new edition of Methods of Environmental Impact Assessment is a practical up-to-date explanation and guide to how EIAs are, and should be, carried out for specific environment components (e.g. air, water, ecological systems, 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. Very few books exist on how EIA should be carried out for specific environmental components. Whereas its sister volume, Introduction to Environmental Impact Assessment, concentrates on the EIA principles, procedures and prospects, Methods of the Environmental Impact Assessment concentrates on the methods applied for the environmental components. It does not attempt to make specialists of its readers, but aims to foster better communications between experts, a better understanding of how EIAs should be carried out, and better EIA-related decisions. Taken together, the two books provide a comprehensive coverage of the theory and practice of EIA. Written by practising specialists, who founded and teach a highly regarded MSc course in environmental assessment and management, and by experts from major consultancies and local government, the book will be invaluable for: people who organize, review, and make decisions about EIA; environmental planners and managers; students taking first degrees in planning, ecology, geography, environmental studies and related subjects with an EIA content; and postgraduate students taking courses in EIA or environmental management.
