EIA training programme - Understanding EIA: from screening to decision making

 Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is an important tool to inform decision- makers, regulators and stakeholders, about the possible environmental, social and economic costs of the proposed project.

To be effective, it requires the active involvement of all concerned stakeholders. There is a genuine need to develop the capacity of the state-level regulators and state level expert appraisal Committee (SEAC) to screen and scope the EIA process, to conduct transparent public consultations and to evaluate the EIA reports, especially after the new EIA notification. At the same time, there is a need among CBO, NGOs, academicians, and environment managers to review and interpret EIA report, as they are technical in nature. Centre for Science and Environment recognises this need and has developed a hands-on five-day training programme aimed at giving practical exposure to participants on EIA with specific reference to coal based power plant, cement, pharmaceutical, mining and others. After the programme, the participants shall have:

  1. Exposure to all aspects of EIA, from its theory to the practical – such as better understanding regarding
    • What data is required, how this data should be collected and interpreted, and significance of the data
    • Effectiveness of the assessment methods
    • What issues should be addressed in the Terms of Reference (TOR)
    • Tools and thumb rules available to evaluate the environmental impact of projects
  2. Better understanding of the EIA process – from screening, scoping, data collection to impact assessment as well as the role of public consultation
  3. Better understanding of the environmental and social impacts of the industrial and developmental projects
  4. Better ability to review EIA reports and identify its strengths and weaknesses
  5. Increased ability to play active role in post-EIA monitoring.

Announcements

  •  Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is an important tool to inform decision- makers, regulators and stakeholders, about the possible environmental, social and economic costs of the proposed project.

  • Centre for Science and Environment recognises Social Impact Assessment (SIA) as an important tool to inform decision makers, regulators and stakeholders about the possible social and economic impacts of a development project. To be effective, SIA requires the active involvement of all concerned stakeholders.

  • Date: 15-26 September, 2014

    It goes unsaid that in order to improve environmental governance, the roles of efficient and worthy Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) along with an equitable growth through proper Social Impact Assessment (SIA) are indispensable. They are not merely tools to assess possible impacts and suggest mitigation for the environmental and social issues, but processes, which if done well, can yield unexpectedly positive results in the form of sustainable and equitable growth.
