Frequently Asked Questions

Environmental planning and assessment is typically conducted prior to starting a land development project. Environmental planners have to take the state of the natural environment and the land’s features into account.

As an example, in the case of an proposed hydroelectric dam project, this assessment would take into account the locations and flow rates of significant rivers, inspecting existing structures and infrastructure, neighbouring roads that might be used for the delivery of materials, and many other variables.

The cost of an environmental planning and assessment varies depending on the project planned.

Environmental Planning and Assessment involves ensuring that construction projects adhere to applicable environmental laws and regulations. Environmental planners are in charge of environmental permits. They also prepare environmental reports and papers, and aid in impact reduction.

An environmental risk assessment (ERA) is a report that identifies the health hazards of exposure to environmental toxins at a particular location and proposes potential remediation or removal efforts.

There are several types of environmental assessment, including:

  1. Environmental Vulnerability Assessment for Climate Change, Natural Hazards, or Disasters (EVULA)
  2. Environmental Valuation Assessment  (EVALA)
  3. Environmental Impact Assessment   (EIA)
  4. Post‐crisis Environmental Assessment (PCEA)
