Draft paper on scoping in impact assessment available for comment

Published 1 October 2015

Scoping is arguably the most important step in impact assessment but it is often done poorly. In response to concerns expressed by practitioners, the EIANZ Special Interest Section on Impact Assessment has prepared a draft background paper on issues in scoping and a set of good practice statements.

Comments are invited on this paper by 16 October and should be sent to ia@eianz.org.

The paper will be revised following further consultation at the EIANZ Conference and a revised version circulated later in the year for comment.
