About this Unit
This unit emphasises the role of environmental management in attainment of ecologically sustainable development. Students will be introduced to a variety of environmental assessment methods that are applied to a range of environmental management issues at local, national and international level. A number of environmental assessment methods will be presented to students in terms of their historical background, legislative implication, national/international standards, process/techniques, supported with case studies and critical reviews. Students will be provided with a number of assessments. The assessment tasks are designed to enable student review the environmental assessment methods that are applied to environmental projects and also to undertake an environmental assessment project of their own. Through critical evaluation of others project and also conducting own project, students' knowledge and understanding about the application, technique, usefulness, and limitations of the various environmental assessment methods will be strengthened.
