There has been considerable interest in understanding how EA processes work in practice, learning from experience and examining the effectiveness of EA (eg. Munro 1987; Ortolano 1993; Lee et al. 1994; Sadler 1995). One important consideration, when determining the effectiveness of EA, is the extent to which its goals for environmental protection and management are achieved. The research reported on here examines the environmental management outcomes of development projects that have undergone EA in Western Australia and seeks to determine the role of EA in influencing these outcomes.
