Background

Background

  • Project screening should be undertaken in accordance with the Environmental Screening Guidelines

  • The proposal submitted for approval should be accompanied by an IEE or EIA report for review

  • The project approval agencies will make arrangements for the public review of IEE/EIA reports


Rational

Rational

  • What are the major sectors of the EIA so far carried out in Nepal?

  • What are the present government policies in database management of EIA?

  • What is the present data base management system in Nepal?

  • What role can plan by the NGOs/INGOs in EIA database management?

Limitation of the study

  • Being an Environmental journalist by profession, this study is not focused in depth of EIA technical aspect.

  • However I tried to explore the present EIA data base management system based on the available EIA information.

  • The effort of the study is to explore the real information on EIA to be ready for dissemination among the general public and concerned stakeholders.


Result and discussion

Result and discussion

  • Major sectors of EIA in Nepal

    Agriculture, Tourism, Hydropower, Wastewater Management, Forestry, Road etc

  • Present policies of EIA database management

    Environment Protection Act 1997

    Environment Protection Regulation 1997

    Those Acts and Regulations haven’t sufficiently addressed the issues of EIA data base management in Nepal.

    National level discussions and efforts are needed to carried out for formulation of the acts and regulations towards the systematic EIA data base management.

  • In order to systematize the EIA data base management system in Nepal, the following points

    are advised to take by the stakeholders.

  • Management of financial resources

  • Capacity building of human resource

  • Establish the separate unit within government body

  • Strengthen the networking

  • Establish a Data Bank

  • We still found inadequate information on EIA database in Nepal which is indeed question of national prestige, so we must focus how can we implement and develop this system effectively.
