Impact Assessment and Sustainable Resource Management by L.G. Smith
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Written by international experts, the books in the series provide introductions to key areas in resource management for students of Geography, Economics, Planning, Politics and Environmental Studies. They are also reference guides for professionals dealing with resource questions in both public and private sectors. The series emphasizes the practical achievements and tasks of resource management as an applied discipline. Present practices in resource management and environmental planning appear unable to help in preventing disasters such as the Exxon Valdez oil-tanker spill, the wholesale destruction of the Brazilian rainforests or the demise of species such as the Giant Panda in China. If major improvements are to be made then a more integrated approach to resource management is needed. "Impact Assessment and Sustainable Resource Management" places impact assessment in the broader context of environmental planning, developing a much-needed integrated approach. It balances academic and practical considerations and provides a systematic framwork for problem solving, then illustrates concepts and methods with case studies taken from around the world. It suggests the changes necessary to ensure that impact assessment fully contributes to the goal of sustainable resource management. It is aimed at undergraduates and the following courses: resource management, geography, environmental science, resource studies, public administration.
