Course Description

The deterioration of ecosystems and growing societal intolerance for environmental damages have raised concerns over the management of the earth's resource base. First, this course examines how public attitudes towards the environment have evolved and the corresponding growth of public participation in environmental decision making. Secondly, emphasis is placed on the ecological basis for environmental planning and analysis. Finally, the growing body of laws, regulations and guidelines which are designed to control environmental behaviours are considered.
