Help us to be sustainable

This course tries to practice what it preaches:

  • Fewer air miles: It aims to reduce the need for EIA trainers to fly to other countries to run courses; and to allow people who want to learn about EIA to do so without having to travel to distant EIA training courses.
  • Information sharing: It provides free training materials, especially for EIA practitioners in developing countries.
  • Reduced paper use: It comes in an e-format to save paper.

Please help us by:

  • Printing only the material from the course that you really need to
  • Contributing to the EIA-Wiki: add legislation, case studies and your experience of EIA
  • Letting others know about this module and the joys of EIA!

  2. Hi Dennis,

    This open educational resource is designed for you to use freely. We do not support enrollment and there is no qualification for completing the course. However, if you are enrolled in an EIA course elsewhere, we hope you will find the resources included here very useful.

  7. I’ve read the scoping portion and it is really helpful. I am presently beginning the scoping document of an extension of a highway that align across several major wetlands, potential endangered species habitat, and parkland/recreational area.

    I was surprise that I couldn’t figure out which country or organization authored this module.

    thank you!

  10. Why don’t test our knowledge after each chapter or at the end with multiple choice questions? then at the end you could provide a certificate which we can put into our application. That would be good idea!
