In most national settings, there is either a two-tier (national versus local government) or a three-tier (national versus state or provincial versus local government) administrative hierarchy (Tindal and Nobes-Tindal 2004; Douglas 2005; Shucksmith 2010). Most current environmental, social, and health impact assessment processes are administered by national, or state/provincial levels of government. The concept of governance, however, is different. At its simplest, it refers to the process of managing participation and involvement, leading towards decision making (Rhodes 1996; Marsden and Murdoch 1998; O’Toole and Burdess 2004).

Society has a much greater awareness of environmental issues and the interconnected web of impacts that development activities have on our land, water, and air over different timescales, and there is much greater awareness that these impacts extend beyond the physical and natural environment. We understand much more about how communities, families, social systems, and local cultures are affected.
