Emerging issue analysis. Similar to environmental scanning, but tries to pick up trends much earlier in their lifespan - hence the name "emerging issues". Futurist Graham Molitor has written a lot about this. The key to EIA is to find precursors: people, places, organizations, and writing that is ahead of the rest of the world. One of Molitor's main findings is that new ideas often begin at the fringes of society, and slowly work their way toward the mainstream.
Environmental Impact Assessment. A report on the impact that a proposed development will have on the surrounding environment.
Environmental Impact Assessment Para 3.6
Environmental Impact Assessment. appraisal of the likely effects of a proposed project, activity or policy on the environment, both positive and negative
Environmental Impact Assessment. The critical appraisal of the likely effects of a policy, plan, programme, project or activity, on the environment.
Environmental impact assessment. A sequential set of activities designed to identify and predict the impacts of a proposed action on the biogeophysical environment and on human health and well being, and to interpret and communicate information about the impacts, including mitigation measures that are likely to eliminate risks. In many countries, organizations planning new projects are required by law to conduct EIA.
Environmental Impact Assessment. Study which requires special measures to be taken in the design of railway infrastructures with regard to: definition of route, structures, railway track and noise abatement.
Environmental Impact Assessment; Electronic Industries Association.
Environmental Impact Assessment. A set of activities designed to contribute pertinent environmental information to project or program decision-making.
Environmental Impact Assessment. Studies undertaken that superimpose a proposed projects’ elements on the existing environment to determine the positive and negative impacts of a project and mitigative measures that can be used to enhance the positive impacts and reduce or eliminate to acceptable levels the negative impacts.
Environmental impact assessment. Advance assessment of the likely environmental impact of a planned development, together with opinions of people and interest groups. The information gathered is passed on to planners and decision-makers
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT. is the process of gathering and analysing information about a project: its possible and probable significant effects on the environment. It has the ultimate objective of providing decision makers with an indication of the likely significant environmental consequences of a project or proposal and enables them to make an informed decision.
See Environmental Impact Assessment
Environmental Impact Assessment. Environmental Impact Assessment can be summarised as the process by which information about the environmental effects of a proposed activity is collected, analysed and presented to decision makers.
Environmental Impact Assessment. An assessment applied at the project level is a process intended to ensure that environmental impacts of schemes are identified prior to the work being carried out so that proposals can be modified or managed in such a way that adverse impacts are avoided or minimised. It is also referred to in some of the literature as Environmental Assessment (EA). Environmental Appraisal is sometimes used to refer to a less formalised process than EIA where an assessment is not required by legislation.
Environmental Impact Assessment. A decision-making process mandated under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) which may require a detailed environmental impact statement analyzing the potential significant environmental impacts and alternatives to the action before the action is permitted. A public comment period takes place on each EIA.
environmental impact assessment (UK)
Environmental impact assessment is the process in which environmental management is integrated into planning for development proposals. A more detailed definition from the International Association of Impact Assessment (1999) serves equally as well "the process of identifying, evaluating and mitigating the biophysical, social, and other relevant effects of development proposals prior to major decisions being taken and commitments made".
Environmental Impact Assessment. under the Town and Country Planning (Assessment of Environmental Effects) Regulations 1988, proposers of certain scheduled developments are required to submit a planning application with an accompanying environmental statement, evaluating the likely environmental impacts of the development, together with an assessment of how the severity of the impacts could be reduced.
Environmental Impact Assessment. Process by which information about the likely environmental effects of certain projects is collected, assessed and taken into account by the local planning authority in deciding whether planning permission should be granted.
Environmental Impact Assessment. The critical appraisal, both positive and negative, of the likely effects of a proposed project, ,development, activity or policy on the environment.
Environmental Impact Assessment. Part of project management concerned with identifying through a formal written technical evaluation likely impact (positive and negative) of a proposed development or activity on natural and man-made environment.
Environmental Impact Assessment. A study of the likely effect on the environment of proposed activities or development. Also called "EIAs". EIAs help bodies like local authorities to decide if they should accept proposals, eg to develop a piece of land for housing.
Enterprise Information Architecture. The Enterprise Information Architecture is a business driven process that details the enterprise's information strategies, its extended information value chain, and the impact on technical architecture. The EIA delineates the key information artifacts of business events, models, and information flows, provides logically consistent information management principles, and enables rapid business decision making and information sharing.
Environmental Impact Assessment. Applicants for certain types of development, usually more significant schemes, are required to submit an "environmental statement" accompanying a planning application. This evaluates the likely environmental impacts of the development, together with an assessment of how the severity of the impacts could be reduced.
Environmental Impact Assessment. Before a mine is constructed, an environmetnal impact assessment may be done to assess what impact the mine will have on the environment, and how environmental destruction can be avoided.
environmental impact assessment. Appraisal of the possible environmental consequences of a past, ongoing, or planned action, resulting in the production of an environmental impact statement or "finding of no significant impact (FONSI)" RT environmental impact statement
Environmental Impact Assessment. EIA describes a procedure that must be followed for certain types of project before they can be given planning permission. The procedure is a means of drawing together an assessment of a project's likely significant environmental effects.
Environmental Impact Assessment. An environmental impact assessment determines the potential or actual impact(s) of an activity on the environment.
Environmental Impact Assessment. is a process of predicting the likely environmental consequences of implementing projects or undertakings and designing appropriate, preventive, mitigating and enhancement measures. It functions both as Planning and Management Tool, and as Regulatory Tool (DENR). EIA is a process that requires consideration of the environment and public participation in the decision-making process of project development (Kiely, 1997). Such projects may include for example, building a hydroelectric dam or factory, irrigating a large valley, or developing a harbor, which may generate impacts on flora, fauna, air quality, landscape and other features of the environment (EIA manual, 1988).
Environmental impact assessment. an evaluation designed to identify and predict the impact of an action or a project on the environment and human health and well-being. Can include risk assessment as a component, along with economic and land use assessment.
Environmental Impact Assessment. A process required by governments prior to the approval and development of resource projects. The assessment details, for each of the main types of pollution (water, air, noise, waste), the situation before the commissioning of the installation, the installationâ€(tm)s properties and direct impact on the environment, and the planned remedial measures.
Environmental Impact Assessment. A study required to be undertaken by a developer to demonstrate to local planning authority the impact of the proposal on the environment.
Environmental Impact Assessment. TheÂ Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) (England and Wales) Regulations 1999 (SI 1999/293)Â require an EIA to be carried out for certain types of development.Â The EIA process evaluates the likely significant effects of a development on the environment and examines mitigation measures to remove or reduce these effects.Â The information is assembled and reproduced as an environmental statement (ES).Â A local planning authority must take the ES into account and comments on the ES from the public and statutory consultees before they reach a decision on whether to grant development consent.
