Human Health in Environmental Impact Assessments
Community health issues can affect business performance and reputation. Properly addressing human health in Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) through an integrated social, economic and environmental approach and anticipating the risks and effects, offers an avenue for building community resilience and improving the health and well-being of all.
The EU EIA Directive names human health among the topics to be addressed when conducting an EIA. That directive applies not only to a wide range of projects in the EU but also to projects funded by the financial institutions of the EU, which operate globally. The International Association for Impact Assessment (IAIA) and the European Public Health Association (EUPHA) have recently published a reference paper providing good practices to address health in ESIA.
