This article reviews the objectives of environmental management and proceeds to discuss evaluation problems and methods in terms of performance against these objectives. Attention is drawn to the need to evaluate human reactions and therefore the care that must be taken when using such proxies as traffic flow as a measure of environmental change. Some known aspects of human responses are examined to predict how evaluation should be pursued. Three methods of evaluation-by targets, scoring and before-and-after studies - are examined to ascertain how they resolve evaluation difficulties. /Author/TRRL/
