Environmental Impact Assessments

 

In many cases environmental impact assessments (EIAs) require an economic specialist study. Members of Stratecon have undertaken a number of such specialist studies. The approach is dictated by both international best practise based on Equator Principles, International Finance Corporation (IFC) standards and the European Investment Bank guidelines. The approach also follows the South African guide on specialist economic studies.

 

In general three principles lie at the heart of  an economic assessment. These are equity, efficiency and sustainability. Is the project equitable to all involved, is it economically efficient and is it sustainable in the long term?  If the answer to any of these questions is NO then suitable mitigation measures need to be suggested and implemented.
