1 No EIA EIA Required *Public involvement Scoping Mitigation and impact management EIA Report Proposal Identification Screening Initial environmental examination Impact analysis Review Decision-making ApprovedNot approved Implementation and follow up Information from this process contributes to effective future EIA Redesign Resubmit *Public involvement *Public involvement typically occurs at these points. It may also occur at any other stage of the EIA Process. Scopingin the EIA process UNEP Training Resource ManualTopic 5 Slide 1

2 UNEP Training Resource Manual Topic 5 Slide 2 Scoping F early step – begins once screening completed F open, interactive process – involves the public F lays the foundation of an EIA – by identifying - boundaries of the EIA study - the information necessary for decision-making - key issues and significant impacts to be considered

3 UNEP Training Resource Manual Topic 5 Slide 3 Key objectives of scoping F find out their concerns F inform and identify stakeholders F consider feasible and practical alternatives F identify the main issues and impacts to be studied F define the boundaries of the EIA study F agree on means of public involvement and methods of analysis F establish the Terms of Reference

4 UNEP Training Resource Manual Topic 5 Slide 4 Guiding principles for the conduct of scoping F scoping is a process not an activity or event F design the scoping process for each proposal F start early, as soon as information permits F prepare information package on what is expected F specify the role of the public in decision-making F approach should be systematic; implementation should be flexible F document the results to guide preparation of EIA F respond to new information and issues as necessary

5 UNEP Training Resource Manual Topic 5 Slide 5 The conduct of scoping F identify range of concerns F evaluate them to determine key issues F categorise the impacts that require study F establish a strategy for addressing them

6 UNEP Training Resource Manual Topic 5 Slide 6 Steps in the scoping process F prepare an outline scope F develop the outline through informal consultation F make the outline available F compile the range of concerns (long list) F evaluate these to establish key issues (short list) F organise these into impact categories (study list) F amend the outline to incorporate the above information F develop Terms of Reference F monitor progress against them, revising as necessary

7 UNEP Training Resource Manual Topic 5 Slide 7 Who should be involved in scoping? F the proponent F the competent authority F the EIA administering body F other responsible agencies F EIA practitioners and experts F key stakeholders (e.g. those affected by the proposal) F the wider community

8 UNEP Training Resource Manual Topic 5 Slide 8 Consideration of alternatives F demand alternatives F supply or input alternatives F activity alternatives F location alternatives F process alternatives F scheduling alternatives

9 UNEP Training Resource Manual Topic 5 Slide 9 Outline Terms of Reference F objectives and background to the proposal F study area and boundaries F alternatives to be examined F opportunities for public involvement F impacts and issues to be studied F the approach to be taken F requirements for mitigation and monitoring F information and data to be included in the EIA report F timetable and requirements for completion of the EIA process
