8. EIA Reporting

The EIA report or impact statement is a primary document for decisionmaking. It organises the information obtained and synthesises the results of the studies and consultations undertaken. A full yet concise account should be given of the likely environmental impacts of a proposal, the recommended measures for mitigating and managing them and the significance of any residual effects.

The audience for an EIA report includes the authorising and implementing agencies, other interested parties and the affected public. Because of its importance as a communications tool, the EIA report needs to be well

organised and clearly written. An effective report will be written both in plain language for non-experts but also to appropriate technical standards.
