Publication Date 1 Jan 1996
OverviewThis is an international review of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), comparing systems used in the UK, USA, the Netherlands, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. It provides an introduction to the nature of EIA, describes standard EIA procedures and explores the best current practice of EIA. The book also discusses each step of the EIA process, appropriate evaluation criteria and relevant methods. In addition, it indicates the direction of future development in EIA: the set criteria and summary tables provided also allow the reader to evaluate further EIA systems using the same framework, and compare them with the eight presented in this study.
