The rapid industrialization in developing countries has enormous impact on the natural environment. With urbanization and infrastructure developments, the natural environment is getting destructed, threatening biodiversity. Therefore, it is critical to predicting the environmental consequences of a project’s development. This is where Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) comes to the rescue.
EIA serves as a tool that ensures the protection and conservation of the environment and natural resources, ensuring sustainable economic development for any project under construction. It also opens doors for massive gains in the selection of a project location, process, design, development actions, and decision-making. However, conducting an efficient EIA is a daunting task, and comes with numerous challenges.
