About this book
Drawing on a deep understanding of relationships between resource projects and indigenous peoples, Howitt argues that current resource management practices consider important human values irrelevant and invisible, among their checklists and dry technical methods. He offers an approach to social impact assessment methods which are more participatory and empowering than many alternative technical approaches.
