PRACTICAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT (EIA) COURSE

On completion of this course, participants will be able to take part in conducting environmental impact assessment that meets regulatory standards. Plus you get certified as an Environment Impact Assessor.


Why take the environmental impact assessment training course

Projects in many sectors, e.g oil and gas, cannot be executed without first assessing the implications of the developments on the ecosystem, where the projects will be sited, and submitting an EIA report to regulatory bodies.

EIA aims to identify, predict, evaluate and mitigate the biophysical, social and other relevant effects of project proposals before making major project decisions or commitments. Hence EIA is a planning tool used to aid decision making before certain projects, programmes or policy decisions are made.

EIAs are usuallly compulsory for projects that are expected to have significant environmental impacts: e.g oil and gas projects; projects that will affect landscape/land use patterns and cause an increase in population; those involving the production and handling of harzardous substances; those that will be located at eccologically sensitive areas, residential areas; and any project that will have a significant negative impacton the ecosystem.

Therefore, EIA is not only about obtaining a permit but also to ensure sustainable development whereby the proposed project becomes beneficial to all stakeholders and the natural environment.

The environmental impact assessment training course will equip participants with the knowledege and skills to successfully take part in conducting an environmental impact assessment and writing an EIA report that meets regulatory requirements.
