Critical Acclaim
‘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
