A FOWL DEED

No Environment Impact Assessment (EIA)!

Section 9 of the Fauna and Flora Protection Ordinance (No. 49, amended in 1993) provides that any development project carried out within the 1 mile boundary of a National park, essentially, needs the written approval of the DG of the DWC and should also conduct an EIA, in compliance with the stipulations of the National Environment Act.The gazette notification bearing No. 772/22 of 24/06/93, of the National Environment Act No. 47 of 1980, amended by Acts No. 56 of 1988 and No. 53 of 2000, specifies that any development project sited at a river basin, requires an EIA. This project has only an Initial Environmental Examination Report (IEER). It has not conducted an EIA. Yet, the CEA has already sanctioned the project and it is now in full swing.

what do we need to find out
What do we need to find out?
  • Are elephants actually using these “routes”
  • Apart from the Protected Areas –where are they? Is it all year or seasonal? For how many years?
  • What is the status of the elephants?
  • Are they herds or individual animals?
  • What is the current land-use in the area?
  • What do people think about having elephants in “their backyard”?
  • How much time do we have?
so how do we do all this
So how do we do all this?
  • Plan
  • Equipment?
  • Background Data collection?
  • Field Work?
  • Enter Data and check accuracy?
  • Field Work
  • Analyze and draft report/maps
  • Discuss with stakeholders
  • Field Work
  • Final Report

  • Enter Data and check accuracy -is what I’ve a correct reflection of what’s in the field?
  • What Analysis do I need to do?
  • What do I need to show on the map?
  • What data do I have for the background?
  • From where can I collect it? Is there time?
  • What is the print size?
  • Is my layout clear?
  • What is the audience?

what s next
What's next
  • Clearly state objectives of this project
  • Decide on study area
  • Design methodology for collecting and analyzing data
  • Decide on dates of field activities
  • Break into groups to handle the main activities both before and after the field work
  • Decide on timeline
  • Develop a grid based map showing land use layers, elephant use, HEC, and other important factors.
