ENVI2122 Environmental Governance and Assessment introduces students to the legal, economic and impact assessment tools that play an important role in regulating human impacts on the environment. This unit builds on conceptual understandings of the environment, environmental issues and critical thought developed in first year to explore environmental regulation in an Australian context. It navigates environmental and ecological economic thought and connects this to impacts. In the latter part of the semester the concept of impact assessment is introduced to build on the legal and economic knowledge and investigate the history, strengths, weaknesses and potential of various forms of assessment to achieve improved environmental outcomes.
