What is an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) or environmental risk assessment is a process of identifying, predicting, evaluating and mitigating the likely environmental, biophysical impacts right from an early planning stage of a project, taking into account inter-related socio-economic, cultural and human-health impacts.

EIA is an effective tool performed by inspections and analysis of scheduled activities ensuring environmentally safe, sustainable development, which helps shape projects to suit the local environment and present the predictions and options to decision-makers to take environmental consideration into account.

Why Environmental Impact Assessment required?

Environmental impact assessment (EIA) is one of the environmental management system planning, decision-making and management tools for environmental protection, through which climate change could be potentially addressed. It is clear that EIA can and should play a role in tackling climate change as international climate change agreements indicate.

In order to predict environmental impacts of any development activity and to provide an opportunity to mitigate against negative impacts and enhance positive impacts, the environmental risk assessment procedure was developed in the 1970s under a well-defined environmental management system.

Environmental risk assessment thus ensures that the potential problems are foreseen and addressed at an early stage in project planning and design. Creation of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) system is vital to conform socio-economic development projects to environmental safety and thereby ensure sustainable economic development.

Global environmental management system is commonly associated with businesses but in fact they are applicable to all areas of life. In short, an impact assessment, which is more than technical reports, a means to a larger intention – the protection and improvement of the environmental quality of life, identifying and evaluating the effects of activities (mainly human) on the environment – natural and social, will look at what possible outcome a specific action can have and how to minimize or prevent any negative outcomes.
