The History of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA):
Environmental assessment, as it is known today, first began in the United States around the time of the Second World War.
This period corresponded with large scale growth of the pharmaceutical manufactures, intensive agriculture using toxic chemicals, major engineering and mining works with the potential to radically alter the natural landscape, and, of course, the threats and benefits represented by nuclear power.
Environmental Impact Assessment what is it? Why Do It?
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) can be described as a process identifying the consequences for the total environment of undertaking new development and changing natural systems. It arose to resolve the competing demands for economic development with preservation of the quality of all life in the surrounding areas.
Initially, the EIA process aims to provide decision makers with scientifically researched and documented evidence to support a reliable prediction on the likely consequences of their propped actions but now their benefits extended to private sectors, firms, etc. Moreover it also covers the socioeconomic aspects or impacts of the new development projects.
Benefits of Applying EIA  

  • Ensure financial credits from The International organizations such as the World Bank, UNDP, Commercial Banks since this EIA is a prerequisite before an agreement to finance such a project or a development activity etc.
  • To avoid any environmental risks or associated health hazards
  • To ensure the sustainability  of the project regardless of its types or size , regional, local, national and/or individual levels.   
  • To avoid unnecessary costs involved with mitigation of the environmental impacts.
  • To predict the impacts which are likely to occur and reduce or eliminate or to avoid their occurrence.

When EIA? 

EIA study should be done throughout the project phases i.e. during the construction, operational and decommissioning of the project.
