Abstract

Reported in this paper is the South Creek Valley sector AEAM case study which demonstrates an application of computing technology to the management of uncertainty in EIA and the potential for development of computer simulation models by stakeholders as a tool for facilitating resolution of conflicts. Factors that limit the traditional application of computing technology are the gaps in scientific understanding of components of ecosystems, poor ability to predict change in socio-economic systems, and the political nature of decision making processes regarding development proposals.
