Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is one of the key process of the preventive environmental approach, mandatory to a full set of countries and projects (e.g., agriculture, industry, commercial, services, infrastructures, urban projects, energy, tourism, and others). Environmental Impact allows developers and decision-makers to identify the impact, define measures, and select alternatives to a full set of projects in order to have better integration in the environment and the support integrated search of sustainable development. This Special Issue invites research papers from a wide range of environmental impact issues to present articles emphasizing: (1) new approaches and cases of applications of environmental impact analysis; (2) project impact alternatives selection; (3) define environmental baseline (GIS and others) and environmental evolution without project; (4) impact identification, prevision and assessment; (5) integration of biodiversity, global warming, risk analysis and other environmental factors; (6) feasibility analysis of environmental measures; (7) environmental public consultation and governance; (8) efficiency of environmental impact assessment processes; and (9) link between strategical environmental assessment, environmental impact assessment and sustainability. This environmental impact Special Issue will provide an integrated view of the best cases and trends in solving the challenges associated with the integration of environmental impact methodologies and processes in the decision, in order to review sustainability at different levels.
