Five day training programme on ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT

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 all concerned stakeholders including regulators to screen and scope the EIA process, to conduct transparent public consultations and to evaluate the EIA reports. At the same time, there is a need among environmental managers and NGOs to review and interpret EIA report; and for consultants, institutions and academicians to conduct an effective EIA process.

Centre for Science and Environment recognises this need and has developed a hands-on five-day training programme aimed at giving exposure to the participants on EIA with specific reference to mining, power sector and infrastructure projects (road and highway).

  1. Legal requirements: Environmental Clearance Process, Circulars and Office Memorandums and other Laws and regulations applicable on projects
