Blakley, Associate Professor of Environmental Impact Assessment, Department of Geography and Planning and School of Environment and Sustainability, University of Saskatchewan, Canada and Daniel M. Franks, Professor of Governance and Leadership in Mining, Sustainable Minerals Institute, University of Queensland, Australia

This important Handbook is an essential guide to the state-of-the-art concepts, debates and innovative practices in the field of cumulative impact assessment. It helps to strengthen the foundations of this challenging field, identify key issues demanding solutions and summarize recent trends in forward progress, particularly through the use of illustrative case examples.

‘The consideration of cumulative effects is a critically important and complex aspect of impact assessment. Blakley and Franks have gathered an impressive list of leading experts to offer a broad range of insightful perspectives. Importantly, the book covers both biophysical and social impacts, and deals with cumulative effects at the project, strategic and regional level. It should be on the essential readings list of practitioners, academics and students alike.’
– Meinhard Doelle, Dalhousie University, Canada and World Maritime University, Sweden
