Part III: Environmental Planning Techniques and Strategies
This book provides a set of techniques and strategies with which to approach environmental planning problems. This section of the course is the largest, so as to give students a comprehensive overview of methods for tackling environmental planning challenges.
Recommended Background Texts
Part II: The Environmental Policy Debate
These books set out the major philosophical debates facing environmental planners. As students prepare themselves for the four debates, they should use these books as references to help them identify the philosophical underpinnings of the various approaches to environmental planning. This section of the course is intended to challenge students to identify and understand their own beliefs and convictions as part of broader debates within the field.
Part IV: Synthesis and Preparation for Practice
The last section of the course is intended to give students an overview of the practice of environmental planning. This book serves as a useful reference to show what environmental planners actually do. It addresses a wide variety of environmental planning issues, from sustainable air and water quality to mining and transportation. It is meant to complement the presentations given by the Environmental Policy Group faculty.
