Environmental Impact Assessment

Dublin Core

Subject

Description

Environmental impact assessment (EIA) is a widely used tool for assessing the
environmental implications of projects, policies and plans. It is also an integral part of the decision-making processes involving environmental issues. With the growing
importance of environmental protection and an awareness of pursuing sustainable
development, applying EIA techniques has become more important and compelling.
We will start this free courseware module by introducing some of the current
environmental issues facing Hong Kong, China and the world as a whole. Following on from this, we will introduce the concept of sustainable development. These
background issues illustrate why environmental impact assessments are necessary in the first place, and what role they play in sustainable development.
