Description This article explores what is “good” practice in social impact assessment (SIA). SIA addresses social issues in development through participatory processes that support affected peoples, and companies. SIA seeks to increase understanding of and responses to change, and avoid negative impacts while enhancing positive benefits. The author argues that SIA practices need to address culture, community, power, human rights, gender, justice, place, resilience, and sustainable livelihoods.
