Training and academics

The EIA Cell organizes workshops, modular training courses and seminars of varying duration on various thematic areas in the field of EIA. The training courses are organized for forest officers, resource managers, state and central government officials, environmental managers in corporate sectors, civil-society representatives and decision-makers charged with responsibilities of project approval, implementation and assessment of environmental issues linked to developments in a specific region and sector. The objectives of the training are (i) transfer of knowledge, (ii) upgradation of skills and (iii) fostering the use of best practices in EIA.

The EIA Cell also collaborates with other training institutions, in providing EIA training elsewhere within India and for participants from other countries in the region.

The Institute has now expanded its role in global capacity building through professional support in conducting and delivering international training courses in EIA.
