Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)
  • The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is designed to review, predict, and assess the potential environmental impacts of a project before its plan is finalized in order to come up with measures to prevent or minimize any possible adverse effects that the project could have on the environment.
Post-Environmental Impact Assessment (Post-EIA)
  • The Post-Environmental Impact Assessment aims to consistently monitor the environmental rotection measures implemented in the development projects to be in accordance with the EIA even after their completion, and ensure compliance with such measures and strengthen the EIA by clarifying any uncertainties.
Climate Change Impact Assessment (CCIA)
  • The Climate Change Impact Assessment is designed to investigate, predict, and evaluate in advance the impact of major national plans and development projects on climate change or the impact of climate change in order to prepare measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the climate crisis.('22.9.25. implementation).
