Environmental and Social Impact Assessments and their Role in the Development of Oil and Gas fields
Instructor: Dr Charlotte Grezo has wide experience of working globally across developed and developing markets including Europe, China, US, Asia, and Africa
Environmental and social impact assessments (ESIAs) are and essential part of the planning process for any major project. They are a key element of the regulatory process and are pivotal in many cases to attracting finance, making this course particularly of interest to those involved in attracting investment to Uganda.
This course will allow companies and individuals to understand the environmental and social risks associated with a major natural resource capital project and how these can be mitigated, understanding the environmental and social risks associated with projects, why ESIAs matter, real examples of analogous projects in the Uganda Lake Albert development, and key international standards.
