Environmental Impact Assessment | Spatial Compatibility Assessment
Environmental Impact Assessment
Environmental Impact Assessment evaluates probable environmental impacts of certain, predefined developments suggests how to reduce the severity of the estimated impact. EIA can be required, for example, in the course of projects dealing with railways and roads, power industry, mining or water supply and distribution.
Spatial Compatibility Assessment
Spatial Compatibility Assessment is supposed to examine the effects of major projects on existing settlements, transportation systems, cultural assets or the environment. Possible synergies or conflicts with already implemented projects, impacts on the regional econ-omy and the project’s feasibility are as well to be studied.
