The importance of assessing the impact of the completion of the projects in different sectors on the local environment is becoming crucial. The main reason behind assessing this impact is two-fold, mainly to propose measures to minimize the environmental impact to comply with the applicable laws and secondly to ensure that all necessary permits and consents are obtained before the implementation of project concerned.
