Infrastructure Planning: More Than Science and Technology

Infrastructure Planning: How do we decide whether and where to build our bridges, subways, water systems, power plants, parks, highways? What exactly is an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment? A cost over-run?

This talk gives a short history of the changes in our approaches over the past 75 years, covering the span of the planning process from the germ of an idea to the implementation of the project. Planning documents are produced, such as Feasibility Reports and Environmental Impact Statements.
