Environmental Impact Assessment

The introduction of formal Environmemtal Impact Assessment processes, either as advisory procedures or as a statutory requirement in many countries in Asia since the 1980's has provided a backbone for creation of environmental safeguard policy. Capacity strengthening to impliment the policy has been a feature of environmental administration in Asia over the past 20 years and this has proceeded at differing paces in most countries. However, administrative procedures are now in place and capacity has increased in many countries witht the creation of specialist agencies and units to oversee the formal administration of EIA at least for major infrastructure projects.

David Green has direct experience of the environmental impact assessment process in Asia and has managed major EIA studies and public consultation for large scale infrastructure, including statutory EIAs and the environmental evaluation of strategic planning studies. Clients include donor agencies, governments and a large number of commercial and industrial businesses and leading developers, as well as smaller medium scale enterprises. Projects range through major highways and rural roads, railways, pipelines, waste water treatment plant, landfills, and urban development.  David Green has completed EIAs in many countries accross Asia including China, Thailand, Hong Kong, Pakistan, Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, Philippines and Taiwan.  

     

        

     

The objectives of the EIA process generally cover the of provision of information, description, assessment and proposals for mitigation during the planning, construction and operation, including:
(i)     The Project and associated works or requirements to carry out the Project;
(ii)    Elements of community and environment affected by or on the Project (natural and man-made);
(iii)   Alternatives to avoid and minimise the environmental impacts;
(iv)   Emission sources and significance of impacts on sensitive receivers and uses;
(v)    Potential landscape and visual impacts;
(vi)   Potential losses or damage to flora, fauna and natural habitats;
(vii)  Negative impacts on sites of cultural heritage;
(viii) Safety and risk assessment for nearby uses (if any) ;
(ix)  Propose feasible and practical mitigation measures to minimise pollution, disturbance and nuisance;
(x)   Identify and evaluate residual environmental impacts and the cumulative effects;
(xi)  Specify methods, measures and standards, to be included to reduce impacts to acceptable levels;
(xii)  Investigate secondary environmental impacts due to mitigation measures and identify constraints and modifications; and
(xiii) Specify environmental monitoring and audit requirements to ensure the effective implementation of mitigation.
