Cumulative effects, also referred to as cumulative environmental effects and cumulative impacts, can be defined as changes to the environment caused by the combined impact of past.
Cumulative effects, also referred to as cumulative environmental effects and cumulative impacts, can be defined as changes to the environment caused by the combined impact of past, present and future human activities and natural processes. Cumulative effects to the environment are the result of multiple activities whose individual direct impacts may be relatively minor but in combination with others result are significant environmental effects
Cumulative effects (CE) monitoring is foundational to emerging regional and watershed CE management frameworks, yet monitoring is often poorly integrated with CE management and decision-making processes
Cumulative effects (CE) monitoring is foundational to emerging regional and watershed CE management frameworks, yet monitoring is often poorly integrated with CE management and decision-making processes. The challenges are largely institutional and organizational, more so than scientific or technical
Cumulative Effects and Impacts: The Need for a More Inclusive, Integrative, Regional Approach
Cumulative Effects and Impacts: The Need for a More Inclusive, Integrative, Regional Approach. While previous chapters in this book explored the many challenges posed by cumulative impacts relative to the environment, communities, and human health and well-being, our goal is to develop a common framework for examining cumulative effects and impacts that is inclusive of those perspectives. Therefore, specific on-the-ground examples can be helpful to better understand the complexities, tensions, and interactions among cumulative impacts and foster more integrative approaches to addressing these.
ENVIRONMENTAL CUMULATIVE EFFECTS MANAGEMENT The environment’s ability to cope with increasing pressures from human activity is limited. Environmental cumulative eﬀects management is a way to consider the environmental impact of human activities for a speciﬁc region over time. It recognizes that limits need to be placed on the total emissions and activities in an area based on the region’s sensitivity. This management approach is necessary if we are to protect the environmental quality of the air, land, water and biodiversity in our province. What Are Environmental Cumulative Eﬀects?

Figure 1: Different approaches for assessing cumulative effects (adapted from Dubé, 2003). It would be preferable to assess cumulative effects within existing tools (such as the EIA and SEA processes) where support and capacity already exist. An emerging approach within the South African context is to address cumulative effects within the SEA framework.

The information in this report can be considered as a tool kit which can be used by EIA practitioners in planning and implementing impact studies. A total of 22 types of methods are described for project-level studies; their application, along with several other policy-related methods, are also addressed with reference to cumulative impact assessment and strategic environmental assessment.

This book identifies accumulated environmental, social and economic effects of oil and gas leasing, exploration, and .
This book identifies accumulated environmental, social and economic effects of oil and gas leasing, exploration, and production on Alaska's North Slope. Economic benefits to the region have been accompanied by effects of the roads, infrastructure and activities of oil and gas production on the terrain, plants, animals and peoples of the North Slope. While attempts by the oil industry and regulatory agencies have reduced many of the environmental effects, they have not been eliminated.
