Impact assessment is a set of logical steps that prepares evidence for decision-makers about the potential positive and negative consequences of policy or management options. In the context of soil management, impact assessment is crucial to recognising possible consequences of management decisions on social and natural systems across spatial and temporal scales.

The assessment process involves the evaluation and comparison of the consequences of different soil management options according to six steps: identification of problems, definition of objectives, development of alternative options, analysis of impacts, comparison of options, and recommendation for evaluation, monitoring, and implementation.
