Environmental Impact Assessment Training (EIA)

The aim of this two day course is to provide a basic understanding of the procedures that must be followed for certain types of project before they can be given “development consent”.

Course Objectives:

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is an important procedure for ensuring that the likely effects of new development on the environment are fully understood and taken into account before the development is allowed to go ahead. The course will allow delegates to draw together, in a systematic way, an assessment of a project’s likely significant environmental effects and the scope for reducing them.

Intended for:
