IEMA launches latest edition of its Impact Assessment Outlook Journal
Sustainability body IEMA has today launched the sixth edition of its Impact Assessment Outlook Journal, which explores examples of best practice in digital environmental impact assessment (EIA).
Digital Impact Assessment in Practice has been written by the authors of IEMA’s Digital Impact Assessment Primer to share experience of how digital EIA, and the key messages of the primer, are being delivered in practice.
Examples of reporting, consultation and data collection are included, as well as advice on how to develop new digital products and processes, and insights into the future of digital EIA.
For the first time, this volume of the Outlook Journal can be viewed within IEMA's new Digital Impact Assessment microsite.
This has been created to bring together the materials and digital innovations of the Outlook Journal articles, and key content from the primer to best effect, allowing additional visual and interactive content to be presented.
“Digital methods have the potential to increase knowledge, improve accessibility and safety, reduce costs, and enhance analysis and transparency,” said Rufus Howard, IEMA impact assessment lead.
“The advantages of digital working are clear as we seek to rebuild and reorganise a new sustainable economy. IEMA’s Impact Assessment Network is at the forefront of the digital revolution in planning and environmental management.”
