Aim of the project: The aim of this project is to improve legal certainty concerning where, when and which of the climate change aspects should be assessed in EIA. We also aim to raise awareness among local governments and NGOs about the obligations of taking into account these in EIAs and in environment-related decisions.
In Estonia, the aspects of climate change are unaccounted for in environmental impact assessments (EIA/SEA), which is a considerable problem. While making environment-related discretionary decisions, the decision-makers have also been unable to take into account the climate change aspect (including failure to have due regard to important principles of environmental law). We hope the project will lead to considering the climate aspects in EIA as standard practice where the climate aspect will be given necessary attention in the course of decisions concerning the environment.
