Advisory reports and other documents

11 Aug 2020: Advisory review
Conseil par la CNEE sur le 'Guide méthodologique pour la prise en compte de enjeux de santé dans les évaluations environnementales'

Significant details

2020 - SEEAC elaborated a new guidance document on how health can be better taken into account within ESIA’s. It is financed by IFDD (l’Institut de la Francophonie pour le Développement Durable). The challenge is to get a balance between focussing on Health within the ESIA process, without making a specific guidance document on ESIA. Another challenge is to make it clear what the difference is between HIA and health within ESIA and how HIA can be a useful tool during the elaboration of an ESIA. During the process of elaborating this guidance, the NCEA has published an independent advice on a first draft version. A validation workshop with other experts will take place on Friday 23rd of October. The final guidance document will be available soon after the validation.
