Select a site for a proposed land use change (the size is not important, however, a large site is difficult to assess in the prescribed time frame). The site may or may not have been developed. But the work has to be original (ie you must do your own field work) Ã¢â¬â¹and not use, for example, a documented site or one downloaded from the internet.
Describe using a map, the location of the site with respect to the entire catchment and explain how it affects or is affected by other areas in the catchment. Create a resource inventory using photographs etc (for example geology, soil, landform, and vegetation). Describe the possible limitations of your chosen site if the present land use were to change. These limitations could include access, steep slopes, zoning, soil and water quality, endangered fauna and flora, bush fire hazard and local government and community concerns and risk.
State the proposed land use change. Rank the limitations. Team up with a fellow student who will critically evaluate the land resource inventory and limitations you have set up for your proposed land use change. The questions posed by your fellow student which must then be answered by you.
Discuss how the limitations you have chosen from your rankings in Stage 2 might affect the particular use for the site that you have chosen. Devise a Management Plan that will address the major limitations of proposed land use change in order to ensure a sustainable outcome for your project.
Team up with the same fellow student who will read the entire report and make a critical evaluation of your proposed development. The questions posed by your fellow student (which must be attached to your final submission) must then be answered by you (see Stage 5).
Your responses to Stage 2 and 4 must be included as a separate amendment to your management plan. The entire assignment (Stages 15) Ã¢â¬â¹will be submitted to the coordinator for final marking.
The environment management system (EMS) is a means which can be used in implementing one of the structures program for doing the continuous improvement or the enhancement in the performance of the environment. This whole assignment is fully concerned with the environmental management of the land which mainly refers with the proper managing of the development and also the proper utilization of the environmental resources. The whole task of this assignment is alienated into the five stage structure report. In the first stage it fully deals with the selection of the proposed places and also then needs to do the proper discussion about the proper creation and also the management of the inventory resources like landform, geology, vegetation and also the soil. It also needs to do the critical evaluation of all the limitation of the land includes the low quality of the soil, land, zoning, steep slopes, fire hazard of the bushes and also the jeopardizing of the flora and fauna. In the second part of the assignment an effective land management plan needs to propose on the basis of the critical evaluation. In third it needs to properly devise a management plan. In the fourth stage of the assignment all the critical evaluation of the implemented management plan needs to be done. Then in the fifth or the last step it needs to do the final review and analyze the implemented plan.
Stage 1 is mainly concerned about the selection of the assignment site in which the Olympic Park of Sydney is chosen. The resource inventory which is created is mainly deals with the geology of the land in which it mainly tells about the geological nature of the land which is most suitable on the basis of cultivation. The quality of the vegetation of the land also good in nature which gives the most number of the people to earn their livelihood by doing the cultivation. With all the good sides everything also have some of the limitations under the limitation it includes mainly the flora and fauna of the land which can destroy the fertility of the land by reducing the quality of the land. Now days the cutting down of the trees and also the destruction of the bushes occurs more frequently which is directly destroying the fertilities of the land and due to this the cultivation and also the irrigation of the land are reducing.
Some of the important limitations which are occurring more frequently pointed in the previous stage and also does the ranking system on the basis of the priority of the limitations which are given below:
Rank 1: It needs to deduce the quality of the water and also the land which becomes one of the main factors of the land management because the qualities are decreasing in a considerable rate due the recklessly use of the chemicals and other destructive products which are mainly using by the farmers to improve their cultivation.
Rank 2: In the second rank it deals with the flora and fauna of the lands which mainly reduces the fertility of the land and also do the destruction of the vegetation. To avoid this problem of flora and fauna some of the medicine and also the fertilizers are used which also indirectly causes the fertility of the land.
Rank 3: in the third rank it tells about the destruction of the bushes and the forest, hazards of bush fire which reduces the fertilities of the land.
Limitation 1: By taking account the Sydney Olympic Park the qualities of the water and the land causing the serious impacts through the deduction of the bio diversities of the land which includes the cutting down of the forest and also the woodland, covering up the wetlands for getting the much land. It also includes the neutrality of the land due to the use of the different types of the medicines and also the chemicals which are causing indirectly a greater impact on the fertility of the land.
Limitation 2: The second limitation is mainly deals with the flora and fauna which are the unwanted plants of the land it also causes the serious effects on the fertility of the land and also the cultivation. To avoid these types of the unwanted plants of flora and fauna of the Sydney Olympic Park the communities of the park use some of the medications and chemicals which destroy the fertility of the land.
Limitation 3: In the third part of the limitation it tells about the fire hazards and also some of the destructions of the land which are caused by the people to get freed the land so that it can be used for their own personal purposes.
To overcome these types of the problems of the land management a proper management plan is devised including 6 steps:
Determine the situation: in this step it needs to do the proper determination of the concerned situation on the basis of which the whole management plan is devised by taking account all the problems and also figure out the effective solution of the problems.
Evaluating the goals: in this step it needs to do the proper evaluation of all the available goals by doing proper analyze of all the advantaged and the disadvantages of the concerned goals which helps in the proper implementation of the proposed plan.
Assessing the risk: in this step it deals with the proper assessment of the available risks which can be figured out by doing the proper evaluation of the types and also the variation of the risks so that a suitable plan can put into action.
Create a plan: after doing all the available steps it needs to do the proper creation of the plan so that the devised plan is becomes more effective in nature.
Implement of the plan: the plan also needs to get properly implemented by concerning all the available issues on the basis of which the plan is created.
Review and revise the plan: it is the last step of the whole land management plan where it needs to do the proper revision of the already implemented plan so that it also can get more effective.
Environment management plan
To do the critical evaluation of the proposed management plan it also requires giving the proper description of the above devised plan:
The first step is fully concerned about the proper determination of the situation and depends on this situation the whole management plan is effectively proposed. Then coming to the second step it tells about doing the proper evaluation of all the available goals so that it becomes more suitable to do the implementations of the management plan by taking account all the problems. In the third step the already implemented plan is properly assessed and also the critical evaluation of the plan is done concerning all the aspects of the plan. In the fifth step the implementation of the plan is done and then in the last step it is all concerning about doing the review and the revision of the implemented plan.
In this stage it needs to do the announcement of the perfect plan by concerning all the environmental needs so that it can amend the land management plan and also do the proper discussion of all the available opportunities so that it can properly deals with the improvement of the plan concerning the environment and also needs to provide the basic knowledge of the forest products which can have the ability to do the enhancement of the economic valuation of that region and also have the ability to understand the proper flexibility of the concerned locality.
In an EMS, it includes some of the following step which it needs to follow for the effective management of the environment are planning of the management plan, implementation of the plan, proper monitoring of the plan and also some of the review of the management plan on the basis of the proper evaluation of the environmental risk and also its causing impacts.
To give the proper conclusion of the mentioned study it does the appropriate discussion of all the mentioned stages by concerning all the limitations which becomes the main concern of the environmental management of the land. After taking account all the evaluation of the possible outcomes of the implemented plan it needs to do the proper discussion.
