Environmental assessment

There are several distinct steps involved in undertaking an assessment of environmental factors for a project. Firstly it is necessary to identify any potential impacts. Once an impact is recognised it needs to be recorded. This can be done on a matrix such as the initial identification and assessment of environmental factors form used in the case study. The next step is to measure and evaluate an impact. It is most important that assessors recognise that value judgements are an integral part of environmental evaluation and in completing the identification form care must be taken not to let personal values intrude.
