Impact Assessment Outlook Journal

Volume 1: Perspectives upon Proportionate EIA

How can the EIA process and resulting Environmental Statements become more focussed, effective and efficient? A brand new IEMA publication explores this question and provides solutions drawn from practice.

The Impact Assessment Outlook Journal -Thought pieces from UK practice series offers you thought pieces contributed by IEMA EIA Quality Mark registrants, formatted as a thought-provoking quick read covering key aspects of UK EIA practice. It showcases fresh ideas on key topics and offers you new perspectives on how you can push forward the practice of Impact Assessment in your own organisation.

This first volume from the series focuses on the drive towards proportionate EIA, the challenges, opposing forces, maintaining high performance in ES production and ensuring effective outcomes are delivered for the environment, developer and communities.

Created in partnership with the IEMA Impact Assessment Network Steering Group and Guest Edited by Josh Fothergill FIEMA, this digital journal is perfect for anyone working in (or with an interest in) Impact Assessment.
