This eighth volume from the series brings together a selection of articles on HIA in planning. With the world still in the midst of the Covid-19 global pandemic, a focus on health has never been more relevant. This edition explores mechanisms by which health may be better integrated into the planning system through the implementation of standalone HIA or as an integral part of EIA.

Planning and the EIA process requires the consideration of populations and human health to be undertaken. However, guidance on this area of practice is sparse, and a variety of methodologies are adopted by different practitioners. In this eighth volume of the Impact Assessment Outlook Journal, the articles explore the use of Health Impact Assessment (HIA) as a planning tool as well as the consideration of health in EIA.

Health Impact Assessment in Planning seeks to aid practitioners through guidance and advice on this complex area of practice. Created in partnership with the IEMA Impact Assessment Network Steering Group and Guest Edited by Joanna Bagley, Senior Associate Director at Waterman. This IA Outlook Journal is a welcome addition for anyone working within, or interested in, Health Impact Assessment and Planning.
