En­vi­ron­men­tal Im­pact As­sess­ment (EIA) is an im­por­tant tool for de­ci­sion­mak­ers, reg­u­la­tors and stake­hold­ers to un­der­stand the po­ten­tial im­pacts (ad­verse as well as favourable) of the de­vel­op­men­tal ac­tiv­i­ties on en­vi­ron­ment and so­ci­ety. EIA is a process to in­ter­nal­ize the ex­ter­nal­i­ties as­so­ci­ated with the project ac­tiv­i­ties and cost for de­ci­sion—mak­ing.

Cen­tre for Sci­ence and En­vi­ron­ment is con­duct­ing a five-day train­ing pro­gramme aimed at giv­ing prac­ti­cal in­puts to par­tic­i­pants on con­duct­ing “sec­tor—spe­cific EIA for min­ing, power, ce­ment, and in­dus­try sec­tors spec­i­fied un­der EIA No­ti­fi­ca­tion 2006.”

The train­ing in­puts to par­tic­i­pants would im­prove their un­der­stand­ing of:

1. Screen­ing and scoping of the study, in­clud­ing iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of le­gal re­quire­ments and for­mu­la­tion of ToR

2. Un­der­stand­ing rel­e­vant base­line data to be col­lected (pri­mary and sec­ondary) and the method­ol­ogy of data col­lec­tion

3. In­ter­pre­ta­tion of data to as­sess as­sim­ila­tive ca­pac­ity of the study area

4. Im­pact and risk as­sess­ment of project ac­tiv­i­ties

5. Mit­i­ga­tion and mon­i­tor­ing plan

6. En­vi­ron­ment Man­age­ment Pro­grammes (EMP)

7. Bud­get­ing and Project Ben­e­fits

8. Pub­lic Hear­ing

9. Eval­u­a­tion of qual­ity of EIA Re­port

10. Pre­sen­ta­tion of EIA Re­port
