ENVSCI 711

: Assessing Environmental Effects
2021 Semester Two (1215)
A focus on the interdisciplinary, scientific assessment of environmental activities with specific reference to the New Zealand context. Methodologies used in the assessment, monitoring and regulation of environmental effects, trends and risks will be critically evaluated. Aspects of the RMA, including consenting procedures and the role of public and professional participants in the process, will be discussed. A key component of the assessment is the preparation of an individual Assessing Environmental Effects report.

ENVSCI 738

: Water Sensitive Cities
2024 Semester One (1243)
This course probes experiments with radical urban change to examine the co-constitution of water-society in the pursuit of improved futures. A case study is built around the aspiration to become a Water Sensitive City. Students first employ quantitative methods to design a water sensitive neighbourhood. Students then critique reductionist approaches to becoming sustainable. The aim is to better understand the sustainable city debate and its emerging logics.
