Strategic planning and implementation of public involvement in environmental decision-making as they relate to environmental impact assessment in Kenya Working Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Over the years the World Bank has been at the forefront of initiating development projects as well as working with its development partners in the Bank’s client countries. As part of its efforts to improve environmental assessments the World Bank envisaged a project aimed at enhancing the effectiveness of public consultations in those projects that are likely to pose significant impacts on the environment. This report analyses the legal and institutional frameworks on public involvement in environmental decision-making in Kenya. It particularly focuses on environmental impact assessments (EIAs) in the World Bank projects. EIA is a process that is designed at the project planning stage to gather information about the potential impact of the proposed development activity on the environment and the use of that information in the decision-making process
