Description: This course is an exciting review of the methodologies involved in conducting Environmental Impact Assessments according to epistemologies from Sustainable Development. EIAs have to be conducted, before permitting is secured, for large projects and programs; such as power plants, highways, pipelines, dams, mines, airports, incinerators and landfills. Most environmental consultancies and government environmental offices will routinely engage experts who are familiar with a comprehensive assessment of local ecosystems around a project or program.
