Environment Impact Assessment
Considering the pace with which the natural resources are being exploited in the contemporary, the day of their extinction doesn’t seem much far. This might not look alarming at this point in time but can cause serious troubles in the near future. While some of these resources might be present in the coming years, most of these can go exterminated for our next generations. Understanding such circumstances, the need for Environment Impact Assessment i.e. EIA comes into play. At Walkton, we truly understand the need for conserving the very precious and useful natural resources and thus working on EIA. With the ever increasing population, the usage of natural resources is also increasing at a very fast rate, hence sustainable development and EIA become a necessity.
What is Environment Impact Assessment?
Before moving on to how Walkton contributes to Environment Impact Assessment, we need to
understand what actually this term means and how it is related to sustainable development.
First of all, we need to define sustainable development. Well, sustainable development is the
economic development that is performed without depleting the natural resources so that they
can be used for the next generations as well. Whereas, Environment Impact Assessment is a
very important management tool that is used to ensure the most favorable or optimum use of
natural resources for sustainable development.
In order to keep a check on the multidisciplinary input necessary for environment appraisal, several Expert Committees have been organized for the sectors which are listed below:
• Industrial Projects
• River Valley, H.E., and Irrigation Projects
• Mining Projects
• Nuclear Power Projects
• Infrastructure Development and other Miscellaneous Projects
• Thermal Power Projects
