環境影響評価制度論

環境影響評価制度論(S2ターム)08D1403 Environmental Impact Assessment and Mitigation (S2 Term) 10 students max, June 17 (Saturday) field trip by bus On the first week class on July 9th, I need to fix the number of students to 10. The most important requirement of this class is to attend all schedules including field trip.
Environmental Impact Assessment is the most important environmental policy tool for balancing development projects and environmental conservation. "Mitigation" measures proposed through EIA procedures are concrete ways to achieve those balances. Mitigation, if “impacts” can be defined “problems” in EIAs, corresponds to “solution” against those problems. Therefore evaluation measurements and mitigation proposal are the most essential and critical parts in EIAs.

This course focuses on ecological and practical aspects with emphasis on principles, mechanisms (procedures), and case studies of EIAs in students' countries.
As an ecological assessment technology, Habitat Evaluation Procedure (HEP) and Habitat Suitability Index Models (HSI models), the most popular quantitative habitat assessment methods are also learned.
In addition, “Biodiversity offset” and its market-oriented economic instrument “biodiversity banking” are discussed as the forefront of strategic ecological mitigation measures.

One day field tour at Tsubaki TC Satoyama Bank in Chiba is included. Tsubaki TC Satoyama Bank is the first biodiversity offset bank in Japan. You are going to learn both "impacts" stemming from photovoltaic power plant development project as renewable energy and "mitigation effects" expected by ecological mitiagtion measures including biodiversity offset banking at field.
