CSE's short-term training programme on EIA of MINING PROJECTS

Date: February 13 – 17, 2012

The minerals sector is a key driver for the country’s industrial growth. However, it has brought in its wake severe environmental repercussions and social unrest. One of the greatest challenges, therefore, is how to make mining environmentally and socially acceptable.

Unfortunately, most EIA reports either overlook or poorly interpret the critical issues related to a mining project. There is an urgent need to strengthen capacity of regulators, NGOs, environmental consultants and industries towards understanding and mitigating the impacts of a mining project.

Centre for Science and Environment brings you a handson five-day training programme aimed at giving practical exposure to participants on all aspects related to assessment, interpretation and management of a mining project.

The programme will cover:

  • Environmental clearance process and mining legislations

  • Review of effectiveness of an EIA report

  • Mining technologies and best practices

  • Data interpretation (for analysing the impacts of
    mining projects)

  • Understanding the TOR (Terms of Reference)

  • Tools and thumb-rules to evaluate environmental and
    social impacts

  • Effectiveness of assessment methods

  • Mine closure plans and best practices in reclamation

  • Resettlement and Rehabilitation plans

  • Addressing civil society concerns in the public
    consultation process

  • Emerging sustainable tools and best practices

  • Developing the ability to review and assess EIA
    reports and mine closure plans

  • Developing the ability for post-EIA monitoring
