CSE's One Month Training Programme on Environment and Social Impact Assessment

Date: January 16 - February 16, 2012

Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) and Social Impact Assessment (SIA) are important tools to foresee and address potential environmental, social and economic problems at an early stage of project planning and design. A well conceptualized and executed EIA/SIA report allows project proponents to reduce the negative aspects of the project. It also enables stakeholders to understand the project and its likely consequences, and allows them to participate and intervene in various stages of project development.

Centre for Science and Environment’s month-long EIA/SIA Training Programme aims to provide practical exposure to participants with specific reference to Mining, Hydropower, Highways and Industrial and Power Projects.
