Methods of Environmental Impact Assessment

Methods of evaluating environmental impact: predicting, identifying, and evaluating project effects using checklists, questionnaires, linear methods, and cartographic analysis.

00:00:00 Methods of environmental impact assessment: predicting, identifying, and evaluating the environmental effects of a project. Includes formal methods like checklists.

🌍 The study of environmental impact aims to predict and evaluate the effects of human activities on the quality of life and the environment.

📝 The purpose of an environmental impact assessment is to inform decision-making regarding new projects and propose measures to mitigate negative effects.

🔎 Different methods, including expert consultation and structured checklists, are used to analyze and evaluate the environmental impact of projects.

00:02:03 Methods of environmental impact assessment: checklist, descriptive states, and questionnaires are important tools to evaluate parameters and impacts, ensuring no factors are overlooked.

🔍 There are different types of methods for assessing environmental impact, including checklists, descriptive lists, and questionnaires.

📝 Checklists and descriptive lists provide guidance for evaluating impacted environmental parameters and can help identify potential mitigation measures.

💬 Questionnaires are a set of systematic questions that analyze the qualitative importance of environmental factors and their impacts.

00:04:08 Methods of environmental impact assessment: linear methods analyze direct and indirect impacts, while networks detect secondary impacts and interactions. The method of Linking Impact Assessment and Multicriteria Analysis (LIAM) quantitatively evaluates impacts using homogeneous indicators.

Linear methods of assessing environmental impact are used to analyze direct and indirect impacts.

Networks are useful for detecting indirect and secondary impacts and identifying interactions in complete projects.

The CARTER method is a quantitative approach used for evaluating environmental impacts, employing homogeneous indicators.

00:06:13 Methods of environmental impact assessment: This video discusses different methods for evaluating the environmental impact of projects, including graphical estimations and cartographic analysis.

💡 Methods of environmental impact assessment involve measurement, quantification, and evaluation.

🌍 The cartographic method considers the characteristics of the territory for harmonious project integration.

📊 The inventory includes factors like climate, geology, hydrology, soil, flora, fauna, and land use.

00:08:19 This video discusses methods for evaluating environmental impact through an economic analysis. It also explores the importance of considering all factors and benefits in the evaluation process.

📊 An economic analytical system can be used to compare options and alternatives by evaluating the costs of damage versus the costs of prevention.

🔄 The concept of costs versus benefits in environmental analysis is misleading, as it overlooks the interconnected nature of these two factors and the loss of environmental quality and diversity.

🗺️ The use of computerized systems for territorial analysis offers various services, including interdisciplinary research, environmental impact studies, and digital elevation models.

📝 The process of conducting an environmental impact assessment involves evaluating the pre-operational state of the environment, identifying potential impacts, and creating standardized inventories and maps.

00:10:24 This video discusses methods for evaluating environmental impact. It emphasizes the use of matrices to establish cause-effect relationships and assess the magnitude and importance of potential impacts.

📚 There are six methods that can be used in the environmental impact assessment process.

🔄 The Leopold matrix is a widely used method for identifying cause-effect relationships in a project.

⚖️ The Leopold matrix assesses the magnitude and importance of potential environmental impacts.

00:12:29 Evaluation methods for environmental impact. It analyzes significant impacts based on a grid matrix, considering physical, chemical, and biological characteristics. Allows comparison of alternatives, but lacks reproducibility and consideration of interconnections between factors.

💡 The video discusses the importance of evaluating environmental impacts.

🌍 The Leopold matrix is a comprehensive method that considers physical, chemical, and biological characteristics.

🔍 The matrix allows for the comparison of alternatives and the consideration of magnitude and importance of environmental impacts.
