Integrated Assessment and Policymaking

UNEP has been assisting countries to apply project-level Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) over the last three decades. Since the late 1990s, UNEP through its Economics and Trade Branch (ETB) has expanded and elevated EIA to examine not only the environmental but also social and economic impacts of development policies including plans and programmes. A major focus is on Integrated Assessment of Trade-related Policies in view of the growing pace of trade liberalization. The most recent country-level application of this work was organised under the Integrated Assessment and Planning initiative. Based on many years of experience in EIA and integrated assessment, UNEP ETB is now taking a step further to encourage Integrated Policymaking for Sustainable Development.
