|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|
|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.|
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.
Would like to get this completed before March 31.
