The authors of this book present a comprehensive analysis of impact management for such large-scale resource and industrial development projects as power plants, mines, and nuclear waste disposal facilities. An overall framework for designing an impact management program is presented and specific recommendations for implementing management measures are provided. This book is unique in that it provides a conceptual framework for choosing among alternative approaches in designing a management system, as well as offering practical guidance for implementing such systems.
