Case Studies of Environmental Impact Assessments

The course covers methods for environmental impact assessment (EIA) and strategic environmental assessment (SEA).

EIAs aim to produce, from an environmental point of view, more comprehensive background materials for societal decision making both with regard to policy and direct exploitation. The course will allow you to test your knowledge within environmental science and apply it in a practical investigation. You will, during the course project, with support of the course staff, lectures, study visits, your own information collection and exercises, produce a comprehensive EIA. 

The course is part of Master's Programme in Environmental Management and Physical Planning but can also be read as a separate course.
