Questionnaire on Good Practice in Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and Public Participation in the Arctic
The Arctic EIA project is looking for examples of good practice from EIA projects undertaken across the Arctic circumpolar region. Have you taken part in a well-executed EIA? Or is there a specific component of an EIA, like public participation or mitigation measures that has been completed so successfully that it could be used as an example of good practice? If so, we would like you to tell us about your experiences.
What is a good practice? Good practice, broadly speaking, is a practice or procedure that has proven to work well, has produced good results, and can therefore be recommended as a model.
The purpose of this questionnaire is to identify and collect good practices in order to share and refine them into good practice recommendations for how EIA should be conducted in the Arctic. The questionnaire is targeted to all EIA stakeholders: Indigenous Peoples and other Arctic residents and communities, authorities, developers, consultants, NGOs, scholars and any other interested participant.
We appreciate you taking the time to fill out this questionnaire. Responses will be analyzed by the Arctic EIA project’s Editorial group. Reporting of the results of the questionnaire will happen on a general level and will not be connected to the personal information of the respondent.
If you need more information, or would prefer to participate in a telephone interview, rather than submit a written response, please contact the Project coordinator, Päivi A. Karvinen using the following e-mail or telephone number:
tel. +358 50 308 0194
Please, feel free to distribute this questionnaire within your community of EIA practitioners and others who may be interested in responding.
We’d kindly ask your responses by December 22, 2017.
