Environmental Impact Assessment

Link to the step by step guide to Environmental impact assessment registration procedure

What is Environmental Impact Assessment?

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is defined as a systematic process to predict, identify, and evaluate the environmental effects of proposed actions and projects. The process is used to prevent and mitigate adverse impacts, enhance positive impacts and assist the rational use of natural resources to maximize the benefit of socio-economic development projects and ensuring sustainable development.

What are the economic benefits of EIA process?

Once adverse impacts are identified from the proposed project, advance corrective measures can be incorporated into the project which helps developers to minimize environmental risks and financial costs. However, options are considered for the projects where damage is irreversible to assist developers to invest in profit making ventures which would have been lost due to environmental problems. The process ensures financially and economically efficient projects with guarantee to attain long term profits.

Which projects require EIA?

Projects with identified adverse impacts on environment call for a full EIA process for mitigation measures and thus the Ministerial Order No04/2008 of 15/08/2008 establishing the list of works, activities and projects that have to undertake an environmental impact assessment highlights some projects as follows; construction and repair of international and national roads, large bridges, industries, factories, hydro-dams and electrical lines, public dams for water conservation, rain water harvesting for agricultural activities and artificial lakes, large hotels public building which accommodate more than one hundred daily, extraction of mines and public land fills among others.
