Event overview

The fourth and final webinar in this series of four designed to help EIA practitioners understand and prepare for future challenges will see Josh professionally speculate on the future of EIA - outside of the EU.

With key aspects of EIA in the UK enshrined in multinational conventions including Espoo and Arhus Josh will explain why EIA is here to stay regardless of a deal, or no deal scenario. He will underscore the opportunities provided by Brexit to alter the mechanics behind EIA and discuss options to improve practice, such as centralising decision making, merging it with other legislature or further changing the screening thresholds.

At the time of this webinar the UK will have just 15 days to go until Brexit (probably…) and it will be up to Josh to set out how EIA may be impacted by the negotiations, consultations and acts that have preceded it.
