Citizen values assessment (CVA), developed in the
Netherlands Ministry of Transport, Public Works
and Water Management, is a research method that
assesses citizens’ judgements about the qualities of
their living environment. CVA considers how
planned developments may affect environmental
qualities from the perspective of people who live in,
or otherwise use, the area affected by the project. A
case study relating to the proposed redesign of an
inner city highway is presented. CVA provides
valuable additional information that can be used in
environmental impact assessment (EIA) procedures,
and a specific technique for incorporating
social considerations, thereby assisting in the integration
of social impact assessment within EIA.
