The importance of screening and scoping - Niger

16 September 2019

"Good preparation during the screening and scoping phases, will lead to better consideration of environmental issues in the final project.” This was one of the main lessons participants took home after a training course that focused on the ESIA procedure in Niger. By means of a practical case study, discussions and a field visit, the participants familiarised themselves with all aspects of the ESIA procedure. 

The Niger Environmental Assessment Bureau, supported by the NCEA, organised the training course on the occasion of the new ESIA legislation which was introduced earlier this year.
