Training programme EIA PROCESS: SCREENING TO DECISION MAKING
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is an important tool for decisionmakers, regulators and stakeholders, to understand the potential impacts (adverse as well as favorable) of the developmental activities on environment and society. EIA is a process to internalize the externalities associated with the project activities in the project 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 EIA for all 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 of relevant base line data to be collected (both primary and secondary) and data collection
3. Interpretation of data to assess assimilative capacity of the study area.
4. Impact and Risk Assessment due to 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
