Environmental Assessment (EA) Reports

Environmental assessment (EA) is mandatory for plans and programs in agriculture, forestry, fisheries, transport, energy, waste management, water management and industries, including mining of mineral resources, electronic communications, tourism, spatial planning and land use, when these plans and programs outline the framework for future development of investment proposals in Annexes 1 and 2.

Therefore, the choice of making out EA team is essential for professional, independent and responsible work in the assessment. In this regard, we offer not only the drafting of the EA, but professional help during the whole procedure, namely, full participation in all phases of the evaluation:

  • A description of the contents of the main objectives of the plan or program and link with other relevant plans and programs;

  • Relevant aspects of the current state of the environment and possible development without implementation of the plan or program;

  • Characteristics of the environment for areas possibly to be significantly affected;

  • Existing environmental problems identified at different levels related to the plan or program, including those relating to areas of particular environmental importance, such as protected areas under the Biodiversity Act;

  • The objectives of environmental protection at national and international level related to the plan and program and the way those objectives and any environmental considerations are taken into account during the preparation of the plan or program;

  • Possible significant environmental impacts, including biodiversity, population, human health, fauna, flora, soil, water, air, climatic factors, material assets, cultural heritage including architectural and archaeological heritage, landscape and the connections between them; these effects should include secondary, cumulative, synergistic, short, medium and long-term permanent and temporary, positive and negative effects;

  • The measures that are envisaged to prevent, reduce and as fully as possible offset any adverse effects from the implementation of the plan or program on the environment;

  • Description of the reasons for selecting the alternatives dealt with and methods of conducting an environmental assessment, including the difficulty in gathering the necessary information about it, such as technical deficiencies and lack of know-how;

  • Description of necessary measures in relation to monitoring during implementation of the plan or program;
