When You Build It, They Will Come


Scoping- What is it?

  • Process for outlining the range and types of hazards and beneficial impacts.

  • Overall types and categories of questions that must be addressed are defined at this stage of the HIA.

  • Input of key stakeholders and the relevant host-country health authorities is critical so that the HIA adequately addresses a realistic range of health concerns;

Scoping

  • Timing of the HIA is critical

  • Maximum benefit occurs before final engineering design specifications are “locked-in”

  • Project proponents often consider health “covered” as part of an SEIA or SIA

  • Whether separate or integrate, health should be systematically addressed

  • Keeping HIA on the radar screen

  • HIA and SIA– “tyranny” of the anthropologists!

  • Integration vs. stand-alone

  • Who performs the HIA

  • Survey fatigue and other household follies

  • M&E issues-Key Performance Indicators issues

  • Roles and Responsibilities between project proponents and host governments-”but for the project”

  • Cumulative effects issues
