Subject index 439,Preface to the first edition, There has been a remarkable and refreshing interest in environmental issues over the past.
few years A major impetus was provided by the 1987 Report of the World Commission. on the Environment and Development the Brundtland Report the Rio Summit in 1992. sought to accelerate the impetus Much of the discussion on environmental issues and on. sustainable development is about the better management of current activity in harmony. with the environment However there will always be pressure for new development. How much better it would be to avoid or mitigate the potential harmful effects of future. development on the environment at the planning stage Environmental impact assessment. EIA assesses the impacts of planned activity on the environment in advance thereby. allowing avoidance measures to be taken prevention is better than cure. Environmental impact assessment was first formally established in the USA in 1969 It. has spread worldwide and received a significant boost in Europe with the introduction of. an EC Directive on EIA in 1985 This was implemented in the UK in 1988 Subsequently. there has been a rapid growth in EIA activity and over three hundred environmental. impact statements EISs are now produced in the UK each year EIA is an approach in. good currency It is also an area where many of the practitioners have limited experience. This text provides a comprehensive introduction to the various dimensions of EIA It has. been written with the requirements of both undergraduate and postgraduate students in. mind It should also be of considerable value to those in practice planners developers. and various interest groups EIA is on a rapid learning curve this text is offered as a. point on the curve, The book is structured into four parts The first provides an introduction to the. principles of EIA and an overview of its development and agency and legislative context. Part 2 provides a step by step discussion and critique of the EIA process Part 3 examines. current practice broadly in the UK and in several other countries and in more detail. through selected UK case studies Part 4 considers possible future developments It is. likely that much more of the EIA iceberg will become visible in the 1990s and beyond. An outline of important and associated developments in environmental auditing and in. strategic environmental assessment concludes the text. Although the book has a clear UK orientation it does draw extensively on EIA. experience worldwide and it should be of interest to readers from many countries The. book seeks to highlight best practice and to offer enough insight to methods and to. supporting references to provide valuable guidance to the practitioner For information. on detailed methods for assessment of impacts in particular topic areas e g landscape. air quality traffic impacts the reader is referred to the complementary volume Methods. of environmental impact assessment Morris Therivel 1995 London UCL Press. John Glasson,Riki Therivel,Andrew Chadwick,Oxford Brookes University. Preface to the third edition, The aims and scope of the third edition are unchanged from those of the first edition. However as noted in the preface to the first edition EIA continues to evolve and adapt. and any commentary on the subject must be seen as part of a continuing discussion The. worldwide spread of EIA is becoming even more comprehensive In the European Union. there is now over 15 years experience of the implementation of the pioneering EIA. Directive including 5 years experience of the important 1999 amendments There has. been considerable interest in the development of the EIA process in strengthening. perceived areas of weakness in extending the scope of activity and also in assessing. effectiveness Reflecting such changes this fully revised edition updates the commentary. by introducing and developing a number of issues which are seen as of growing. importance to both the student and the practitioner of EIA. The structure of the first edition has been retained plus much of the material from the. second edition but variations and additions have been made to specific sections In Part 1. Principles and Procedures the importance of an adaptive EIA is addressed further In. the EU context the implementation of the amended EIA Directive is discussed more. fully including the divergent practice across the Member States and the specific. regulations and procedures operational in the UK In Part 2 discussion of the EIA. process many elements have been updated including screening and scoping. alternatives prediction participation mitigation and monitoring and auditing. We have made major changes to Part 3 overview of practice drawing on the findings. of important reviews of EIA effectiveness and operation in practice Chapter 9 is. completely new and focuses on case studies of EIA in practice Most of the case studies. are UK based and involve EIA at the individual project level although an example of. SEA is also discussed and there are two non UK studies Whilst it is not claimed that the. selected case studies all represent best examples of EIA practice they do include some. novel and innovative approaches towards particular issues in EIA such as new methods. of public participation and the treatment of cumulative effects They also draw attention. to some of the limitations of the process in practice Chapter 10 Comparative Practice. has also had a major revision reflecting for example growing experience in African. countries China and countries in transition and major reviews for some well established. EIA systems in for example Canada and Australia, Part 4 of the book Prospects has also been substantially revised to reflect some of the. changing prospects for EIA including for example more consideration of cumulative. impacts socio economic impacts public participation and possible shifts towards. integrated assessment Chapter 11 and other parts of the book draw on some of the. findings of the 2003 Five Year Review of the operation of the amended EC EIA. Directive undertaken by the Impacts Assessment Unit IAU at Oxford Brookes. University for the European Commission Chapter 12 is a largely new chapter reflecting. the evolution of strategic environmental assessment SEA and in particular the. introduction of an EU wide SEA Directive operational from July 2004 The chapter. includes a brief guide to carrying out SEA under the new Directive as set out in recent. UK government guidance The appendices now include the full versions of both the. amended EIA Directive and the SEA Directive a revised IAU EIS review package and a. guide to key EIA websites worldwide,John Glasson,Riki Therivel.
