EIA and Tourism Diluting Environmental Safeguards

Tourism: Diluting Environmental Safeguards

The ‘Environment Clearance’ process is a critical regulation to evaluate environmental impact of large development and industrial projects. An important tool in this process is the Environment Impact Assessment (EIA). “EIA is a planning tool that is now generally accepted as an integral component of sound decision-making. The objective of EIA is to foresee and address potential environmental problems/ concerns at an early stage of project planning and design. EIA systematically examines both beneficial and adverse consequences of the project and ensures that these effects are taken into account during project design.” (Govind Singh, 2007)
EIA is a tool to ensure sustainable development through comprehensive investigation and evaluation of potential impact of a proposed development project or activity. Though it has been used in some countries from the late 1960's, it gained wider applicability after the publication of the Brundtland Report (World Commission on Environment and Development, 1987).
