Experts for Conducting Social Impact Assessment in Land Acquisitions
A one-week training programme on Environmental Impact Assessment for Mining Sector was conducted by Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), New Delhi, India.
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. CSE has developed a five-day training programme aimed at giving practical exposure to participants on SIA with specific reference to infrastructure, mining and other industrial projects.
CSE has been working with Central Environment Authority (CEA) on various capacity building initiatives since 2011. CSE also signed a three year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with CEA in March, 2012 to assist CEA in monitoring and compliance of development projects (i.e. EIA), advocate laboratory support and encourage research and knowledge dissemination. Over a period of time, CSE has conducted programmes on EIA, Urban and Industrial Wastewater, Environmental Awareness and Waste Management and has trained over 300 officials in Sri Lanka and more than 30 in India.
CSE in collaboration with Central Environmental Authority (CEA), Sri Lanka conducted a four day training programme for 45 senior level CEA officials from the nine provinces of Sri Lanka. The programme was inaugurated by K.H. Muthukudaarachchi,
