Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and Initial Environmental Examination (IEE) Guidelines, Sectoral Environmental Checklists & Regulations - Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan (December 2015 – July 2016)
Responding to climate change and environmental degradation in the last two decades, the government of GB has decided to renew its legislation on the subject of environment and to provide subsequent rules, regulations, guidelines and checklist for environmental assessment reports of development projects in public and private sector in the region.
INTEGRATION is carrying out the consultancy on behalf of Gilgit-Baltistan Environmental Protection Agency with the aims of developing guidelines for preparation of environmental reports, sectoral environmental checklists, guidelines and regulations in the context of GB. The project will enable local developmental authorities to include climate change and environmental protection as a key element for sustainability assessment of future projects in the province. Furthermore, the study will also serve as a benchmark for other areas in the region that have similar conditions with respect to adverse effects of climate change in the past decades.
