The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a widely used instrument in assessing the environmental effects of development projects or when environmental policies are formulated to be implemented. The purpose of EIA is to ensure the protection and conservation of the environment and natural resources including human health aspects against uncontrolled development.
EIA is a powerful tool for informed decision-making. It contributes to more environmentally sensitive decisions and the integration of environmental and social considerations in development planning. It also contributes to the transparency of the decision-making process during the development, implementation, monitoring and follow-up stages of a development project. EIA should be performed for new developments or projects and for expansions or renovations of existing establishments according to the law of Sri Lanka. A certificate of participation will be awarded on the successful completion of the short course.
