URP 542 – Comparative Environmental Planning

Description

This is an introductory graduate-level course on the fundamental issues, concepts, and analytical methods that shape contemporary environmental planning in practice. The term “environmental planning” encompasses a wide array of planning techniques and institutional settings. Rather than focusing on one particular type of planning, the course addresses recurrent value-based and analytical conflicts that cut across various environmental policymaking and planning activities. We will also survey and apply analytical methods related to: place-based land suitability analysis; project-based environmental impact analysis; and the use of ‘scorecards’ and other related environmental information conveyance techniques.
