Environmental Impact Assessment: A Tool towards Sustainability - 23rd June 2021

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has long been a tool for achieving sustainable development through impact assessment and option selection for policies, programmes and plans as well as engineering projects in Hong Kong and overseas. It also becomes the focus of discussion and public concern on mega infrastructure projects.

This one-day Web-CPD course is designed for decision-makers in public and private sector, planners, developers, engineering practitioners and green groups to acquire essential knowledge on the basic theory and best practices of EIA applied to engineering projects. In addition to project EIA, strategic environmental assessment (SEA) will be introduced as a tool applicable for policies/programmes/plans evaluation. The legislative framework and licensing requirements under the EIA Ordinance (Cap 499) will also be discussed in details. The presentation will be supplemented by case studies.
