This subject explores the management of the physical environment from the perspective of development impact, concentrating particularly upon ecology, hydrology, geomechanics and climate. By examining the management of these physical parameters, students are able to understand the complexity of environmental carrying capacity, evaluate resource risks and comprehend the application of sound principles of ecologically sustainable development in policy and practice scenarios.Resource management, environmental law and key policy initiatives are investigated in order to build an understanding of how regulatory frameworks are responding to increasing physical pressures. The management of movement is introduced and considered in order to relate development scale and type to transport provision and, conversely, how and why transport constrains development; more generally, the relationship between transport and sustainable forms of development.
