Environmental impact assessment (EIA) is a tool that is used to assess and manage individual development projects, with an aim of maximising positive benefits and minimising negative impacts for local communities and their environment. When used effectively, EIA can help to support the achievement of green growth targets, climate change resilience, and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
This EIA report had been prepared for the major development and upgrade of the inter-island domestic wharf located in Tongatapu Island.
The development of the haul out and storage facility, especially catering to the requirements of visiting yachts and locally based commercial boats in the Vaipua area on the outskirts of Neiafu, Vava’u.
This EIA is therefore primarily concerned with development activities including the construction of a slipway (92m by 6m) and land clearance of surrounding vegetation as well as specific operational activities with potential negative environmental impacts.
This publication ‘Strategic Environmental Assessment – Guidelines for Pacific Island Countries and
Territories’ has been prepared to provide guidance on the application of SEA as a tool to support
environmental planning, policy and informed decision making. It provides background on the use and
benefits of SEA as well as providing tips and guiding steps on the process, including case studies, toolkits
and checklists for conducting an SEA in the Appendices.
The Kiribati Ministry of Public Works and Utilities (MPWU) in collaboration with Korea Research Institute of Ships and Ocean Engineering (KRISO) with the support by the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries of the Republic of Korea proposes to install a 1 MW Ocean Thermal Conversion (OTEC) on-shore facility at Bikenibeu on South Tarawa. An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has therefore, been commissioned by the Ministry of Public Works and Utilities (MPWU) for the proposed 1 MW OTEC facility.
The Secretariat for Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) have commissioned Cardno (Qld) Pty Ltd (Cardno) to undertake a comprehensive review of integrated environmental assessment approaches and procedures in Pacific Island Countries (PICs), and to provide advice on regional priorities for capacity building requirements in this regard.

Bonnes pratiques en matière d’études de l’impact sur l’environnement pour l’ingénierie côtière dans le Pacifique
L’Étude d’impact environnemental (ÉIE) est un processus utilisé
pour évaluer et gérer des projets de développement particuliers.
Elle a pour objectif de maximiser les retombées positives et de
minimiser les impacts négatifs pour les communautés locales et
leur environnement. La mobilisation des parties prenantes et les
connaissances locales sont essentielles à la réalisation d’une
bonne ÉIE. Correctement mise en oeuvre, l’ÉIE peut contribuer
à la réalisation des objectifs de croissance verte, de résilience
