10 examples and lessons of environmental assessments
How can you incorporate social ánd environmental considerations into decision making at landscape level? In our SRJS programme, we worked with two tools for an environmental assessment to improve the dialogue with all stakeholders involved.
ESIA (Environmental and Social Impact Assessment) is a potentially powerful tool for making fact-based, inclusive, transparent, and accountable decisions at project level. The SEA (Strategic Environmental Assessment) instrument is complementary and brings various stakeholders together around strategic-level decisions on plans, policies, or programmes. Both also aim to make the assessment and planning processes more transparent.
With 10 cases and their lessons learned we share our experiences with both ESIA and SEA. After 4 years of practice, SRJS’ work on ESIA and SEA shows that transparency and inclusiveness did improve many times. Read the report and examples here.
