There have been numerous EIA follow-up studies since then, many of which are discussed in subsequent chapters. However, this is the ﬁrst time that a volume has been produced that is speciﬁcally dedicated to EIA follow-up theory and practice for an international audience. 4). The issues in EIA follow-up have shifted from mainly technical and scientiﬁc to management aspects. Key issues in the early literature concern the accuracy of impact predictions and the quality of EISs. These documents were expected to contain testable hypotheses, and monitoring and follow-up focused on predictive accuracy and compliance issues.
There are many different institutional requirements for EIA follow-up in practice around the world and it is not possible to review them all here. Practices vary from voluntary commitments for monitoring and reporting on EIA outcomes, through to speciﬁc command and control approaches, some of which provide for specialist independent follow-up review bodies. Generally, jurisdictions with a long history of EIA tend to be more advanced in their requirements for follow-up. g. in Canada and Hong Kong) and there is a trend for increasing requirements for EIA follow-up to occur.
These have been well articulated elsewhere and were summarized by Arts and Nooteboom (1999) as ﬁve key problems: 1 Uncertainty and limited information Uncertainty during the pre-decision stages of EIA is a principal reason for initiating EIA follow-up studies. However, these uncertainties do not necessarily go away, and may continue to pose difﬁculties during follow-up investigations (discussed further in Chapter 2). 2 Deﬁciencies in EISs As with uncertainty, deﬁciencies in EISs may provide a key reason for conducting EIA follow-up.
