EIA & SIA

Impact Assessment


We have the depth and breadth of expertise to respond to the most technically challenging and time-critical infrastructure projects, as well as the urgent transition to a low carbon economy. We bring significant value to our clients, harnessing an unrivalled breadth of skills and deep technical expertise to produce outstanding solutions to the most challenging problems.
We have experience across the full development lifecycle, from inception through master planning and development planning. Our environmental consultants understand both how things work and how things are built, and are excellent integrating the environmental sciences on projects. We are also experienced in providing feedback from EIA into project design.
Our experience in undertaking Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA), Health, Safety and Environmental Impact Assessment (HSEIA), and Environmental & Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) is extensive. We seek to deliver savings and efficiencies in time, cost and resources. What our clients really value is how we work – we seek outcomes that are transformational.

 

When we conduct this assessment, we do it in two components – Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and Socio-economic Impact Assessment (SIA) in a package. The two assessments are collectively termed ESIA – Environmental and Socio-economic Impact Assessment.

In the EIA segment, we look into the following as a baseline investigation:
  • Flora & Fauna
  • Soil
  • Water
  • Atmosphere
  • Noise
  • Air
  • Landscaping & Topography
In the SIA segment, we visit and observe residential places near the project site, and look into the following:
  • Livelihoods
  • Population Displacement
  • Architectural and Historic Heritage
  • Recreational Uses

 

Conceptual Framework of EIA and SIA

 

ESIA Framework
The government of Myanmar has been making efforts for the sustainable development of Myanmar, which is built on three basic areas namely economic development, environmental development, and social development. Economic growth achieved in a way that does not consider the environmental concerns, will not be sustainable in the long run.
Therefore, sustainable development needs careful integration of environmental, economic, and social needs in order to achieve both an increased standard of living in short term, and a net gain or equilibrium among human, natural, and economic resources to support future generations in the long term.

ESIA has been conducted for:
