A review on good practices of environment impact assessment (EIA)
Environmental impact assessment is a dynamic tool in assessing the environment related, social and financial aspects of a project before commencing. EIA helps in choosing those projects which are based on the fundamentals of sustained development such that any adverse impact from the new projects can be resolved through well developed and logical decisions. Earlier, EIA has been not practiced with stringent regulations especially in developing countries of south Asia. Environment and economic growth both were working in opposite directions i.e where there was financial prospect there environment degradation was remarkable. And this scenario of ecological degradation has generated some serious ecological issues like air pollution, global warming, and natural resource depletion etc. Although, currently there is tremendous economic growth yet environment sustainability has become a challenging concern to the world. Thereby to overcome this disastrous situation many countries have adopted certain strict legislative rules and regulations for EIA by the environmentalists, scholars, general public, communities and government organizations. Therefore, the present article focuses on these issues and illustrates on some of the good practices of EIA.
