This course is designed to provide practical guidance to professionals involved in the review and evaluation of Environmental Impact Assessments. It is aimed at professionals who participate in the process of reviewing proposed projects, policies, or programs and/or those working on environmental protection and management, social or natural sciences, public management, etc. and who review and evaluate the results of Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) carried out by others. It is intended to apply to a range of legal, institutional, and cultural scenarios and to be used by reviewers from any country where Environmental Impact Assessments are conducted. The course is divided into five modules: (1) The EIA process and the role of the reviewer; (2) Evaluation of an Environmental Impact Assessment document, part 1; (3) Evaluation of an Environmental Impact Assessment document, part 2; (4) Preparation and communication of the reviewer's comments; and (5) Resources for the reviewer and course closing. Please note that this course will have one synchronous session (live session to attend a specific day and time through videoconference) to be held during module 2, on Wednesday at 12:00 PM, Washington time. This session is entirely optional, therefore your participation will not affect the final grade of the course. We recommend this session for informative purposes only.
