Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a policy and management tool for planning and decision-making.This volume includes an introduction to EIA. And explains its process, methods, and tools.

Conceived in the 1970s after the United Nations Conference on the Environment in Stockholm, EIA assists policy-makers and the general public in identifying, predicting, and evaluating the environmental impact and consequences of proposed development projects, plans, and policies. The outcome of an EIA study helps to decide whether a given project should be implemented and what from it should take.

It discusses the implementation of specific environmental management measures and the need for their constant monitoring. The authors also explore the writing and reviewing of an EIA report and the process of translating and communicating the findings of an EIA study to decision-makers and the public. The book also examines emerging trends in EIA and concludes with a number of illustrative case studies.
