Environmental Impact Assessment
An Environmental Impact Assessment, or EIA, is a pro-active and systematic process in which the environmental impacts (both positive and negative) of a proposed development are thoroughly assessed and evaluated. The National Environmental Management Act (NEMA) requires that an EIA be carried out by an independent Environmental Assessment Practitioner for a wide range of identified activities.
