Proejct ID: 19

Project Title: Compendium of National EIA Regulators and Regulations

Summary of project:

We will develop a searchable compendium of the names of and contact information for national regulatory agencies, and where country-level EIA regulations can be found.


Project Supervisor: Marla Orenstein

Project Details:

Tel: 403-451-0097


Application closing date: 23 February

Section, committee, etc.: Publications Committee

Estimated time required to comoplete the project: 60-80 hours in total. This project may be split among more than one applicant, depending on workload.

Purpose/Background:

Currently, there is no single source that lists, for each country, the name of the regulatory agency and where relevant regulations can be found.  This project involves creating such a guide.  It is anticipated that this guide will be useful to IAIA’s membership and will help create value for our organization.


Description of tasks:

The member and supervisor will work together to:

a) decide on what country-level information will be useful to collect (e.g., the name of the national-level agency that is in charge of EIA legislation, contact info and a link to the agency’s website, and a link to the EIA regulations themselves);

b) develop a framework for housing data collected (e.g., Excel spreadsheet); and

c) identify information sources.

The member will then undertake research to collect the data and populate the compendium.

Finally, we will work on formatting the compendium attractively to create a useful final product for members.


Skills required by applicant:

High skill level with Microsoft Word and Excel;

Reliable access to a computer and the internet;

High degree of skill in searching for information online;

Strong attention to detail;

Familiarity with languages other than English would be an asset;

Experience of having used/reviewed EIA regulations in at least one country would be helpful.


Hard deadlines:

Would like to get this completed before March 31.
