Abstract

Social impact assessment (SIA) has traditionally focused on the assessment of planned interventions implemented over relatively limited space and time. Since its inception, however, SIA has been applied to an over-increasing range of situations which also include assessing the impacts of diffuse changes occurring across large geographic areas and over long time periods. The focus of SIA has also shifted to emphasize participatory, collaborative approaches to accessing impacts rather than more data-driven, technocratic approaches (Vanclay, 2006).
