Seminar on Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIAs)

“Debating ESIAs: Effectiveness, concerns and prospects”
Sharing the results of a literature review and expert interviews as part of the LANDac applied research project into ESIAs “Ten-years after: A reality check on impact assessments of infrastructural projects”.

On June 23, from 15:30 – 17:00 PM CEST, LANDac organizes a seminar to discuss Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIAs).

The project aims to improve the positive contribution of environmental and social impact assessments, by reflecting on what might be done to close the gap between real and projected impacts of investments in infrastructure. The seminar will focus on the following questions: What have we learnt to date about how well ESIAs are working? Does it help to mitigate the negative effects on people’s livelihoods, especially when these involve the displacement? Is there a future for ESIAs?

We kindly ask you to register for this seminar. After registration you will receive the Zoom-link for the seminar. Register here!
