Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Process and Procedures
Development through use of technologies is required to improve the standard of living. In view of the fact that Development projects are interfering with the environment, it is essential, before starting a major project, to assess the present environment scenario and, at the same time, it is necessary to assess impact of the same project on the environment during its operation.
Environmental concerns have to be addressed rationally before any project is grounded. The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is an effort to anticipate measure and weigh the socio-economic and biophysical changes that may result from a proposed project EIA is a formal study process used to predict environmental risk and assist decision-makers in considering the proposed project’s environmental costs and benefits. When the benefits sufficiently exceed the costs, the project can be viewed as environmentally justified. Based on EIA, the regulatory measures can be identified and the roles of concerned agencies defined for achieving more efficient environmental management.
