Event description

Description

In trying to improve quality in EIA we have created a disproportionate approach to practice that now threatens its essential purpose – to give key environment issues a voice in decision-making. As a result of growing concerns across the EIA community, IEMA undertook a series of collaborative discussions and in July launched a Proportionate EIA Strategy for the UK. This workshop series is a key element in turning the strategy from rhetoric into a reality, and deliver an effective implementation plan.

This upcoming afternoon workshop will include a presentation on the strategy; afterwards, you’ll get the opportunity to share on your views on the next steps we can take in Wales. The findings of the discussion will be combined with the outcomes of a separate meeting with the Welsh Government, Natural Resource Wales and other Welsh EIA stakeholders, with the aim of formulating a collaborative Welsh implementation plan for the Proportionate EIA Strategy.

However, there’s also a need for more practitioner discussion and debate amongst EIA professionals to explore everyday practical challenges and disseminate good practice. To reflect this, the workshop will also include a facilitated discussion considering the challenges you’re facing right now, whether they’re with the implementation of the 2017 Regulations or the wider complexities of practice. Josh Fothergill will provide his expert perspective on these crucial issues and enable a collective dialogue to identify practical good practice solutions.

Come along to make the most of your opportunity to get practical EIA advice and to help contribute to a wider push to deliver more proportionate assessment in Wales. So, set the afternoon aside, identify and anonymise some of your most tricky EIA challenges, and we’ll see you in Cardiff on the 23 November. Book your place now.
