Impact assessment aims to ensure that environmental and social issues are identified and factored in during the development and adoption of public policies and plans, and the consenting of public and private development projects. At its best, impact assessment helps ensure social value to communities and economic value to investors, without eroding biodiversity and natural capital and without pushing beyond environmental limits.
