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 methods relevant to the assessment of environmental impacts and review the history of impact assessment in legislation and policy. Students will be provided with a number of environmental assessments and be required to critically evaluate the quality of the process. In small groups students will undertake an environmental assessment of a proposed development to gain insight into the process of EIA preparation. Students will also be introduced to the field of environmental auditing through industrial visits incorporating auditing exercises. Other environmental assessment tools will be introduced.
