An appraisal of environmental management in Trinidad and Tobago /

Recent developments in environmental management (EM) in Trinidad and Tobago have produced several umbrella legislation and institutional reforms. Since their enactment in 1995, there are still questions about their efficacy and key issues of these are examined. A multi-variant, cross-comparison approach relates the new and existing EM strategies to recommended guidelines found in the literature and collected from local opinion. Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is used in tandem with EM, as it is the main tool of EM in Trinidad and Tobago. A case study of EIA application is used to assess the effectiveness of EIA and EM in Trinidad and Tobago. Recommendations for reform are made based on the analysis and the case study.
