research needs and opportunites /

"How should society intervene to reduce or mitigate risk? This is one challenge that proponents, assessors, intervenors and panel members in EIA have to face; and because of this much of the work carried out in EIA already involves risk analysis. In this study we focus on two questions: Would the more explicit treatment of risk in EIA improve, codify or extend aspects of the EIA process; and what research needs, opportunities and priorities would emerge as a result?"--Exec.
