Abstract

It presents an overview of the theme based on the author’s experience on EIA in developing countries. In many of these countries, a holistic approach has been adopted to EIA requiring the consideration of both biophysical and socioeconomic impacts. This is expressed in regulations concerning the basic EIA contents. Thus, social variables are implicit in the following items, wherever environment is mentioned.
