Environmental Impact Assessment in Southern Africa In 2003 SAIEA compiled a comprehensive - though by now slightly outdated - overview of the State of Environmental Assessment in the SADC region. Its contents deal with policy, practice and institutional issues. It also contains a list of useful references and contact numbers.
Handbook on EA Legislation in the SADC Region This handbook contains a country by country overview of environmental assessment and related policies and laws. Some of the information is dated but we hope to revise this publication in the future.
Impact Assessment Case Studies From Southern Africa SAIEA has identified and developed SADC-area case studies demonstrating the benefits of EA. The case studies support SAIEA's information sharing, awareness creation, and training activities.
Calabash In cooperation with CIDA and supported by the World Bank, SAIEA launched the Calabash Project in 2003. The project aimed to assist SADC countries to move forward on democratic reform by using EIA as a catalyst for participatory decision-making. This product includes a number of tools for regulators, civil society, practitioners and the private sector.
Integrating HIV & Gender-Related issues into EA in Eastern & Southern Africa These guidelines were prepared for the UNDP Regional Centre for Eastern & Southern Africa by SAIEA in 2012. They aim to increase awareness amongst decision makers, development planners and EIA practitioners about the need for EAs to improve their consideration of health and gender issues.
CBBIA With support from the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs and on behalf of IAIA SAIEA produced these guidelines in 2006. This document provides guidance for decision makers on a range of biodiversity principals and issues which confront decision makers every day when they evaluate impact assessments.
SEA of the Central Namib Uranium Rush In 2009, SAIEA was contracted by the Government of the Republic of Namibia, with funding provided by the German Government through the German-Namibian Technical Cooperation Project of the Geological Surveys of Germany (BGR) and Namibia (GSN), to undertake a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) for the so called central Namib “Uranium Rush”.
