CONCEPT OF ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT AND IDEA OF SUSTAINABLE DEVLOPMENT ABSTRACT The Rio treaties broadened the concept of common concern and global responsibility for protection of ic growth and environmental degradation can be de-linked by promoting more eco-efficient growth patterns.

Environmental assessment (EA) is the assessment of the environmental consequences (positive negative) of a plan, policy, program, or actual projects prior to the decision to move forward with the proposed action. In this context, the term "environmental impact assessment" (EIA) is usually used when applied to actual projects by individuals or companies and the term "strategic environmental.

Environmental assessment can be defined as identifying, estimating, and evaluating the environmental impacts of existing and proposed projects, by conducting environmental studies, to mitigate the relevant negative effects prior to making decisions and commitments.

Besides economic performance of the biomass-based production chain, various environmental loads and potential impacts of a. Environmental impact assessment (EIA) is one of the environmental assessment tools being used worldwide to provide decision-makers and the concerned public with essential information to plan for environmentally sustainable economic development.
