Environmental Assessment and
Environmental Impact Assessment
An Environmental Impact Assessment (EA) is an evaluation of the environment within an area of study that will be affected by a proposed project. It is used to predict environmental effects of a proposed development before it is carried out.
This includes the identification of habitat, species, and potential environmental hazards and impacts to the project area. Environmental Assessments result in the identification of actions that may be necessary to prevent or mitigate adverse effects.
The process requires a careful assessment of impacts of a proposal on the natural, social, cultural, and economic aspects of the community.
