Good Practice Recommendations for Environmental Impact Assessment and Public Participation in the Arctic
The objectives of the project are:
- To ensure that environmental considerations specific to the Arctic including social and health aspects, are explicitly addressed and incorporated into the planning, design and decision making of large-scale economic projects.
- To identify existing good practices through sharing and learning with the aim of developing good practice recommendations for EIA in the Arctic.
- To promote meaningful practices of public participation, especially the participation of indigenous peoples, and the integration of traditional and local knowledge in EIA within the Arctic.
- To build a viable network of Arctic EIA actors.
This project is a flagship initiative of the Finnish Chairmanship (2017-2019).
