Introductory Course to the International Legal Framework on Environmental Impact Assessment

eLearning Topic: 
National Biodiversity Strategies and Actions Plans Curriculum

Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) provides a tool that assists in the anticipation and minimization of development’s negative effects. Undertaken in the early stages of project planning and design, EIA helps shape development in a manner that best suits the local environment and is most responsive to human needs. This course introduces you to the Espoo Convention, which seeks to establish Environmental Impact Assessment-based mechanisms to effectively monitor and control trans-boundary pollution. It will take you 1 hour approximately to complete the course, excluding additional materials.

Note on Partners: The InforMEA Initiative brings together Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEA) to develop harmonized and interoperable information systems for the benefit of Parties and the environment community at large. It is facilitated by UN Environment and financially supported by the European Union. This course was developed in partnership with the United Nations on the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).
