I covered the three most popular form of matrices in my previous post, namely, Simple Matrix, Leopold Matrix, and the Component Interaction Matrix. However, each project has different necessities and around the world, different EIA teams have come up with specific assessment matrices that will best suit their […]

Is it enough to suggest mitigation measures and let things be? Of course not! That will be like asking a kid not to touch the remote and then leaving the kid in the house to go shopping! The final step of the Environmental Impact Assessment is the longest […]

Prediction and mitigation of impacts

After we have screened a project to see if it requires an EIA or not, and after we have conducted the scoping process (which includes baseline study, impact assessment in the form of checklists/matrices/networks and creating a ToR), we come to the third step of Environmental Impact Assessment: […]

The third common method of assessing impacts in EIA is called the Network method (checklists and matrices are the other two). This was first given by Sorenson in 1971, primarily to explain linkages between different environmental aspects. It is solely used to illustrate and understand primary, secondary and […]

There are many methods by which we can assess the impact of a developmental project on our site and it’s various components. The simplest of these methods are checklists, which I’ve written about before. Checklists were too primitive to be used for large-scale projects. A step higher from […]
