Activity 3:Sustainable development and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)


Does the building of disneyland abide by this definition l.jpg
Does the building of Disneyland abide by this definition?

Sustainable development is a concept adopted for the development of an area in which the needs of environment, social and economic development are carefully balanced, so as to enable both the present and future generations to enjoy a vibrant economy, social progress, as well as a high quality environment.


What is environmental impact assessment eia l.jpg
What is Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)?


Every development has environmental impact l.jpg
Every Development has Environmental Impact

  • Air quality

  • Noise

  • Water quality

  • Waste management

  • Land contamination

  • Ecology

  • Fishery

  • Visual appearance

  • Cultural heritage

  • Hazards to life


Eia helping to minimize environmental impact l.jpg

EIA

Environmental Impact

  • predictsor measures the environmental impact

  • identifies ways to minimize impact

    (e.g.alternative site selection and strategic planning)

EIA – Helping to Minimize Environmental Impact

Environmental Impact

 Important for sustainable development


In hk eia is required by law l.jpg
In HK, EIA is required by Law

  • The Law:Environmental Impact Assessment Ordinance (EIAO)

  • Designated developmental projects listed in Schedule 2 and 3 of the EIAO should set up an EIAin order to be granted permission to do the project

Relative to impacts upon fish culture enterprises, the Ma Wan Fish Culture Zone (FCZ) will probably not be affected by any rise in suspended solids, reductions in dissolved oxygen concentration or raised nutrient levels caused by either construction or operation of the theme park. Projected hydrodynamic changes will not affect the FCZ water quality, since water current speeds will be little affected. Waste water discharges will comply with Water Pollution Control Ordinance standards. Ways to reduce possible effects from the Penney's Bay reclamation have been recommended. These measures, together with monitoring will protect the Ma Wan FCZ.

Is EIA always reliable?

Extract from the EIA Report (executive summary):

Homework: Wan Fish Culture Zone (FCZ) will probably not be affected by any rise in suspended solids, reductions in dissolved oxygen concentration or raised nutrient levels caused by either construction or operation of the theme park. Projected hydrodynamic changes will not affect the FCZ water quality, since water current speeds will be little affected. Waste water discharges will comply wit

  • Refer to the Ma Wan case

  • Prepare a group report!

  • Topic: Is EIA always reliable?

  • You should discuss possible limitations of the EIA to predict environmental impact arising from the development.

Activity 4: Wan Fish Culture Zone (FCZ) will probably not be affected by any rise in suspended solids, reductions in dissolved oxygen concentration or raised nutrient levels caused by either construction or operation of the theme park. Projected hydrodynamic changes will not affect the FCZ water quality, since water current speeds will be little affected. Waste water discharges will comply wit

Discuss with your colleagues and prepare well for the City Forum !!!

How do they interrelate?

  • Science

  • Technology

  • Society

  • Environment

You can use the issue of the theme park and dioxin to illustrate


Slide16 l.jpg

Science magic kingdom?

(eg. predicting the impact, the study of dioxin)

Technology

(eg. computer modeling in EIA, machines used to remove dioxin)

Society

(eg. economic benefit of the theme park, health problems due to dioxin)

Environment

(eg. prevent pollution caused by the building of the theme park and the leakage of dioxin)


Science is affected by society l.jpg
Science is affected by society magic kingdom?

Scientific investigations are affected

by political, commercial and

social pressures.


Society is affected by science l.jpg

Commitment from magic kingdom?

EVERYONE !!!

to the environment.

Our society relies on balanced ecosystems for survival.

We have responsibility for the present and future generations.
