CBD guidelines

The Convention for Biological Diversity (CBD) provides voluntary guidelines for incorporating biodiversity into environmental impact assessments (EIA) and strategic environmental assessments (SEA) of policies, plans, and programmes. These guidelines define a sequence of procedural steps characterizing good-practice in EIAs and include appropriate screening, scoping, as well as review processes that assure stakeholder participation.
