Making ESIA reports more accessible through interactive websites

How to make ESIA reports more accessible and understandable for the public? With this question in mind, a pilot for ‘interactive ESIA reports’ started in The Netherlands. An existing ESIA report was transformed into a website with interactive aspects and 3D visualisations. The Ministry for Infrastructure and environment, one of the initiators, asked the NCEA to assess the added value of the interactive ESIA report compared to a more ‘traditional’ report. In our advice, we concluded that an interactive ESIA report offers good opportunities to make the information more accessible, and recommended to make sure that it meets the specific information needs of various users.
