Environmental impact assessment is the process of identifying, predicting, evaluating and mitigating the biophysical, social, and other relevant effects of development proposals prior to major decisions being taken and commitments made. Deficiencies in the IA review process can lead to costly delays, legal ramifications and cost overruns.
The environmental impact assessment (IA) process can be overwhelmingly complex for new practitioners. As the associated legislation continues to evolve and with a new federal act being released over the next year, this is the ideal time to ensure you are well-versed and knowledgeable in how to plan and carry out an IA.
This two-day workshop will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to be well-prepared for your next project.
