Health Impact Assessment

This chapter reviews the development of environmental impact assessment (EIA) to set the context against which lessons can be drawn. It briefly considers the rationale for EIA and indicates the extent of its spread across the globe as a legal procedure. The chapter then explains how EIA works. This will encompass a consideration of the procedural nature of EIA, which is a crucial point when it comes to the possibility for legal action. It also considers the role of stakeholders, the potential for conflicts of interest to arise as well as public consultation. Finally, it considers the funding of an EIA, which is a practical point of great significance when considering the impartiality of the assessment. The chapter concludes by drawing on the experience with respect to health impact assessment (HIA).
