Synopsis

Containing most of the papers presented at the first International Conference on Environmental Impact and Development organized by the Wessex Institute of Technology, Environmental Impact fills the need for inter-disciplinary coverage of the most serious problems that affect sustainable development. The basic premise is that development projects need to consider the most pressing issues related to environmental impacts in order to provide complete solutions. The current emphasis on sustainable development is a consequence of a general awareness of the various environmental problems that result from our modern society. This has led to the need to assess the impact of economic investments on the environment. Investment assessment and environmental economics need to be discussed in an integrated way, in accordance with the principles of sustainability, considering the social and environmental aspects of new investments, as well as possible environmental damage, including the destruction of natural resources and larger releases of waste and pollution into the environment.The book covers such topic as: Environmental Policies and Planning; Environmental Assessments; Development Issues; Sustainable City; Economic Analysis; Natural Resources Management; Energy and the Environment; Food and the Environment; Ecosystems Health; Brownfields Rehabilitation; Water Resources Management; Soil Contamination; Air and Water Pollution; Toxicity Studies; Environmental Health Risk; Risk Analysis.
