Environmental Impact Assessment

An environmental impact assessment identifies and predicts the impact on of a measure or project on the environment and on man's health and well-being before the project is realised. Based on these potential consequences, alternative strategies may be sought or the project may be cancelled altogether if the impact is too negative. An EIA is completed with an auditing at project termination which compares actual outcomes with predicted outcomes.
