[Extract] As the preceding chapters show, our knowledge and use of social assessment in the suite of planning and impact assessment methods and approaches has greatly increased in the last decade. Social assessment, however, is rarely well integrated within planning and impact assessment processes and is often used in a limited or reactive way. The observation of many practitioners, including many of the authors of this volume, is that social assessment rarely has a strong institutional base. Practitioners conclude that the competent, routine application of social assessment will only be achieved through its institutionalisation in the systems of governance of, and planning for, natural resources.
