Environmental Assessment is an important tool to inform decision-makers, regulators, and stakeholders, about the possible environmental, social, and economic costs of the proposed project, to be effective, it requires the active involvement of all concerned stakeholders.

The session remained very informative with great insights and higher competency for the sustainability of any sort of project in a holistic manner along with the active participation of the attendee.

The training provided participants with the awareness of the need to start managing the organization’s risks effectively.
