Environmental assessment sourcebook : volume 3 - guidelines for environmental assessment of energy and industry projects (English)

The sourcebook is designed to assist all those involved in environmental assessment (EA). Environmental assessment teams conducting EAs for borrowing governments need to know Bank policy regarding the project under consideration and which aspects of a project are of particular concern to the Bank. This sourcebook provides specific information and common ground for discussion among those involved. It provides assistance for advisory tasks, through discussions of fundamental environmental considerations; summaries of relevant Bank policies; and analyses of other topics that affect project implementation. The sourcebook focuses on those operations with major potential for negative environmental impact, such as new infrastructure, dams and highways. Bank policies and procedures, guidelines, precedents and "best practice" regarding the environment have been scattered throughout the institution and its publications. This sourcebook now collects this corporate knowledge into a single source. It is planned as an easy-to-use reference manual, hence the overlaps and repetition.
