Another step towards addressing the social dimensions of environmental impacts: the Technical Appendix of the Ecosystem Services Review for Impact Assessment is out!
The Technical Appendix of the Ecosystem Services Review for Impact Assessment (ESR for IA) is now available on-line!
The ESR for IA, a six step method to address project impacts and dependencies on ecosystem services as part of the environmental and social impact assessment process, was introduced to non-technical readers in Weaving Ecosystem Services Into Impact Assessment (Version 1.0). The Technical Appendix is designed for ESIA practitioners who require a detailed understanding of the ESR for IA, walking them through each step and sub-step of the method using an illustrative case study.
