Finally, the challenges still facing EIA and SIA evaluation are addressed as robustly as possible. Outlines the latest updates on how EIA and SIA outcome assessment systems are being incorporated Highlights the surge in growth of community participation in EIA and gives valuable insights into the methods and techniques being used to successfully harness this phenomenon Provides updated case studies that demonstrate how the evaluation framework has been applied, revealing the challenges, changes, failures and successes that have taken place on these projects since the first edition

This book shows how social impact assessment (SIA), which emerged barely five decades ago, as a way to anticipate and manage potentially negative social impacts of building dams, power stations, urban infrastructure, highways, industries, mining and other development projects, is now widely in use as a planning tool, especially in developed countries. Although SIA has still not gained much acceptance among development planners in Asia, the situation is gradually changing. In India, SIA initially mandated as a policy guideline in 2007 is now a legal requirement. SIA in China has also recently become obligatory for certain types of development projects. Bangladesh, Laos, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka are other Asian countries that provide examples from a variety of externally funded projects illustrating the use of social impact analysis in project planning to improve development outcomes. With contributions from an array of leading experts, this book is a valuable resource on SIA, indispensable for policymakers, planners, and practitioners in government, international development agencies, private-sector industry, private banks, consultants, teachers, researchers and students of social sciences and development studies, also NGOs everywhere, not in Asia alone.

Part 1 introduces environmental management and discusses the ways in which both the international context and policy issues impact upon modern environmental management. Part 2 describes environmental management processes and systems while Part 3 focusses on how environmental improvements actually occur and the changes needed to introduce these systems. It also outlines some key issues for the future directions of environmental management.

The construction, maintenance and rehabilitation of roads has caused environmental degradation worldwide. In order to control this problem in Asia, the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) introduced Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) guidelines, to which the contractors and consultants must adhere. The main focus of this publication is to address the EIA implementation issues encountered in the ESCAP member countries, analyze them, and propose a comprehensive process for effective EIA of road projects. The issues discussed are based on a review of the existing EIA process in the region and an assessment and evaluation, of several recent studies. The ultimate objective of ESCAP is to have an improved and more effective EIA process.
