Reviewing Environmental Impact Assessments: A guide for communities, authorities and practitioners
An indispensable guide in assisting environmental assessment practitioners, reviewing authorities and the general public in reviewing EIA reports. Many communities directly impacted on by development activities, generally find it intimidating to contribute, let alone comment on EIA processes and reports. They are usually bombarded with scientific and environmental jargon (sometimes deliberately), and if they do comment or contribute, they do so without fully appreciating their own rights and the obligations of the developer or EAP. It is hoped that this book empowers civil society to become active participants in EIA processes pertaining to developments and activities affecting their health and well-being.
