Policy Development & Strategic Planning focuses on developing a working knowledge of the concepts and processes of environmental and regional planning and design. Human perceptions of environments, community participation and the process of designing/planning for an acceptable balance between human use and physical environment are part of this focus. The unit will cover policy formulation, policy analysis, policy implementation, policy evaluation, the formulation of strategic plans, and the roles of different stakeholder groups. Policy formulation with be covered in its four fundamental phases - appraisal, dialogue, formulation and consolidation - while consideration of strategic plan formulation will cover topics from stakeholder consultations to identification of key issues, gaps, opportunities and medium- and long-term outputs. Critical thinking and high-level independent judgement in undertaking various components of the planning process (e.g. planning objectives, environmental assessments, community involvement, report writing) will be emphasised, as will the ability to critically review, analyse and evaluate planning documents and to synthesise and report on them effectively to a variety of audiences.
