Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a well-established instrument of Environmental Law and policy that aims to ensure that potential adverse environmental effects of human activities are assessed before decisions on such activities are made. The instrument is increasingly being applied in respect of activities that may cause environmental effects across the borders of a state. In this book, thirteen systems of Transboundary Environmental Impact Assessment (TEIA) are assessed that exist or are in development in different parts of the world. Although TEIA is generally associated with EIA between territorial states, this book takes a broader approach and is divided into three sub-parts: Transboundary EIA between states, EIA for activities in international and shared areas, and EIA required by international financial institutions. Knowledgeable experts (scholars and practitioners) provide an overview of the history, content, and practice of the individual systems and, based on these discussions, the state of the art concerning TEIA and possible future developments are discussed.

Abstract

Strategic Environmental Impact Assessments have supposedly been mandatory for several years but their implementation has met with a number of difficulties. Controversies around two projects, the Haicang PX Project in Xiamen and the Liulitun Waste Incinerator Power Project in Beijing, highlight some of these challenges. These ultimately led to strong public opposition and large protests, as well as widespread debate. Strategic EIAs began to be taken seriously and promoted widely by the government in 2005. The view of Sun Youhai, director of the Legal Bills Bureau of the Environment and Resources Committee of the National People's Congress, is that the failure of the Strategic EIA Regulations to translate into action is due to defects in its implementation system. Wang Canfa has specifically proposed establishing a system of public interest litigation. Despite the current predicament, strategic EIAs in China have enjoyed hard-won but substantial progress.
