Aim: 
To quantify the land take caused by different types of projects that trigger different EIA pathways, and to assess the effectiveness of the screening stage in addressing land take.
Type of Study: 
Empirical review of EIAs
Key Results: 
This paper discusses how the extent of environmental impacts that 'fly under the radar' of impact assessments can be reduced by improved screening procedures for EIAs.
