ENVIRONMENTAL SOCIAL HEALTH IMPACT ASSESSMENT (ESHIA)

COURSE OVERVIEW

To maximise the benefits of developments interventions and avoid incurring unforeseen costs requires careful consideration of their social and environmental implications. ESHIA requires multi-disciplinary teams to evaluate environmental, social, and health impacts and risks. The clear expectations on social impact assessment and stakeholder engagement have generated high value cooperation between HES and public affairs specialists. The early identification of potential impacts has greatly improved the quality of project decision-making.

This course on integrated approach to environmental, social, and health impact assessments aims to provide environmental practitioners with evaluation, management and administration of this environmental tool and developing successful environmental policies and strategies. Delegates will be able to provide information for decision-making on the environmental consequences of proposed actions; and also promote environmentally sound and sustainable development through the identification of appropriate enhancement and mitigation measures.

Delegate will also be able to predict what the probable impact of development will be, we seek to understand the past behaviour of individuals and communities affected by agency actions, development, or policy changes.
