Environmental assessment has long been a key legal instrument of environmental law. It now governs decision making in many areas relating to environmental protection: pollution control, land use, conservation, and policy making. This volume analyses the development and current state of this mechanism, drawing together the related disciplines of law, governance, and the regulation of decision making. The practice of environmental decision making is elucidated through the use of case studies of contemporary development and policy projects.
