Climate In EIA

Climate and durability standards for Environmental Impact assessment


Climate In EIA

Currently Environmental Impact Assessments do not take account the effects from climate change. This project will deliver instruments and guidelines to improve EIA's on this feature.

In this project, a guidebook is developed that describes how to take into account climate factors in the various phases of the planning process, in an efficient and clear way.

The objective of the project is to produce a method that is efficient and widely accepted and used. Thus, it assures that factors are addressed whenever necessary (but only when necessary).

This way the resilience of (re) construction plans to climate effects can be assessed to the extend that the resulting infrastructure, once built, is future proof also for climate change effects.

Climate and durability standards for Environmental Impact assessment Development of guidelines and instruments for taking climate factors in considerations in the Environmental Impact assessment.

The goal and challenge in the Netherlands is, therefore, to create sustainable and climate resilient infrastructure. In order to achieve this, taking into account of climate factors in the (environmental impact) assessment of alternatives for new or to be reconstructed infrastructure is important.

In this project, a guidebook is developed that describes how to take into account climate factors in the various phases of the planning process, in an efficient and clear way.

The objective of the project is to produce a method that is efficient and widely accepted and used. Thus, it assures that factors are addressed whenever necessary (but only when necessary).

The guidebook will be integrated in the standard procedures of Rijkswaterstaat. It will partly be based on current pilot projects related to the Utrecht Ring Road study. Using the guidebook will lead to cost reduction and reduce risks of climate and extreme weather conditions. The criteria that are developed can and will be used to adjust planning and budgeting principles.
