Informations importantes

Land reclamation projects were planned in the Philippines. For these land reclamation activities, EIAs had to be undertaken. The Netherlands Embassy in the Phillipines asked the NCEA to advise on Terms of Reference (ToR) for such studies.

The NCEA issued advisory ToR containing guidelines on the EIA process and guidelines on the EIA content. The NCEA's advice discusses the following aspects:

  • Scope and aim of the guidelines;
  • Environmental impacts caused by land reclamation (distinguishing between filling, drainage and poldering);
  • Planning and managing the EIA process (including the different stages);
  • Executing the EIA study for site selection and project level and preparing the EIA report.
