Описание: The state of the art of the impact assessment of recycled hazardous waste materials on surface and ground waters is presented. The topics include chemodynamics, toxicology, modeling and information systems.Due to the wealth of information on this topic, the texts of T. Kassim (ed.): Environmental Impact Assessment of Recycled Wastes on Surface and Ground Waters are published in three separate volumes: vol. 1: Concepts, Methodology and Chemical Analysis; vol. 2: Risk Analysis and vol. 3: Engineering Modeling and Sustainability. The book serves as a practical conceptual guide for those who have professional responsibility for the monitoring, design, management, or conduct of environmental impact assessment. It is believed that the book will prove useful to the reader who, regardless of disciplinary background, wants to examine in greater detail the kinds of interdisciplinary contributions to contemporary decision-making processes that characterize modern impact assessment project development.Each volume contains the contents of all volumes.
Описание: Examining the relationship between environmental sustainability and social justice, this text sets out to answer such questions as: if future generations are owed justice, what should we bequeath them?; is "sustainability" an appropriate medium for environmentalists to express their demands?
Описание: Comprising selected material from a 2010 conference held in the delta itself, the papers assembled in this volume include much technical information and offer a full range of perspectives on the environmental and sustainability issues in this sensitive region.
Описание: Recent years have witnessed considerable consolidation between the disciplines of environmental and ecological economics at research level, but until now, textbooks in the area have done little to reflect this. Ahmed Hussen?s book is to date the only one to reconcile the two standpoints.
Описание: Examines sustainability in European environmental policy and explores the related challenges of governance and knowledge. This work provides an assessment of the EU sustainability strategy and focuses on three key directives: Air Quality Management, Strategic Environmental Assessment, and the Emissions Trade System.
Описание: Understanding the governance of complex social-ecological systems is vital in a world faced with rapid environmental change, conflicts over dwindling natural resources, stark disparities between rich and poor and the crises of sustainability. Improved understanding is also essential to promote governance approaches that are underpinned by justice and equity principles and that aim to reduce inequality and benefit the most marginalised sectors of society. This book is concerned with enhancing the understanding of governance in relation to social justice and environmental sustainability across a range of natural resource sectors in Sub-Saharan Africa. By examining governance across various sectors, it reveals the main drivers that influence the nature of governance, the principles and norms that shape it, as well as the factors that constrain or enable achievement of justice and sustainability outcomes. The book also illuminates the complex relationships that exist between various governance actors at different scales, and the reality and challenge of plural legal systems in much of Sub-Saharan Africa. The book comprises 16 chapters, 12 of them case studies recounting experiences in the forest, wildlife, fisheries, conservation, mining and water sectors of diverse countries: Madagascar, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, Mozambique, Sierra Leone and Cameroon.Through insights from these studies, the book seeks to draw lessons from the praxis of natural resource governance in Sub-Saharan Africa and to contribute to debates on how governance can be strengthened and best configured to meet the needs of the poor, in a way that is both socially just and ecologically sustainable.
