Environmental Impact Assessment
Course Description
Economic, social and environmental change is inherent to development. Whilst development aims to bring about positive change it can lead to conflicts. In the past, the promotion of economic growth as the motor for increased wellbeing was the main development thrust with little sensitivity to adverse social or environmental impacts. The need to avoid adverse impacts and to ensure long term benefits led to the concept of sustainability. This has become accepted as an essential feature of development if the aim of increased wellbeing and greater equity in fulfilling basic needs to be met for this and future generations. In order to predict environmental impacts of any development activity and to provide an opportunity to mitigate negative impacts and enhance positive impacts, the environmental impact assessment (EIA) procedure was developed in the 1970s. This course aims to assist staff from different disciplines and backgrounds (government officials, consultants and planners) to incorporate environmental considerations into planning, designing, implementing and regulating programs, plans and projects: thus leading to sustainable development.
