Assessing the Environmental Impact of Textiles and the Clothing Supply Chain provides a standard reference for R&D managers in the textile industry and academic researchers in textile science.
This chapter identifies key issues involved in assessing the impacts of natural resource management (NRM) interventions in agriculture.
Such interventions include adoption of changed NRM practices arising from investments in research and outreach that are implemented through NRM projects, programmes, and policies. The purpose of impact assessment is discussed, as.

This book is about land tenure policies from an international perspective. It adds on the first book published by Holden and Otsuka entitled The Emergence of Land Markets in Africa: Assessing the Impacts on Poverty, Equity, and Efficiency () in a much deeper way with a stronger and clearer focus on policy issues.
Assessing sustainability in human and natural systems is often hampered by complex dynamics, timescales, and inherent linkages among the observable properties.
Although many indicators have been identified that help classify trends indicating movement toward and away from sustainability, evaluating changes in system behavior requires monitoring.

While various methods for non-market valuation have been developed, none. An impact evaluation provides information about the impacts produced by an intervention - positive and negative, intended and unintended, direct and indirect.
This means that an impact evaluation must establish what has been the cause of observed changes (in this case ‘impacts’) referred to as causal attribution (also referred to as causal inference).
