Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)

An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a process used to evaluate the potential environmental effects of a proposed project or development. It involves identifying, predicting, and assessing the impacts on the environment, including impacts on air, water, soil, biodiversity, and human health. The goal is to ensure that decision-makers consider environmental consequences before proceeding with a project.

The EIA process typically includes public participation, where stakeholders can express their concerns and provide input. It also involves proposing mitigation measures to minimize negative impacts and enhance positive outcomes. Conducting an EIA can help prevent environmental degradation, ensure compliance with environmental regulations, and promote sustainable development.
