Description

This book examines the process of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) in Brazil through the lens of community involvement.

The author argues that the implementation of controversial projects, such as the Volta Grande mining project, demonstrate the failure of the current system to acknowledge the interests of local communities.

Using international comparisons of public policy on environmental issues, the author proposes a model which aims to improve public participation in Brazilian environmental decisions.
