PUBLIC PARTICIPATION GUIDELINES - AFRICA-SPECIFIC
Most public participation guidelines are not necessarily Africa-specific, or country-specific for that matter. Much of the available resources and information were generated internationally. However, most international resources are universally applicable or at least contain good guidelines or principles to go by. Therefore, if you do not find what you need under this part of the Website, remember to also look under the International, SADC or country categories.

Also, if you have materials to contribute, please contact us at the Calabash Website.

back to top EIA GUIDELINES
Environmental Impact Assessments are conducted all over the world to identify the potential negative and positive impacts of a proposed project, and to recommend mitigation measures to avoid or reduce potential negative impacts and enhance positive impacts. Almost every country has its own EIA guidelines and laws or regulations. There are also many generic EIA guidelines available internationally so if you cannot find what you need under this part of the Website, remember to look under the International, SADC or country categories. Also, if you have materials to contribute, please contact us at the Calabash Website.
