EIA Guidelines for Coastal Tourism Development in Pacific Island Countries and Territories

Date created: 07 March 2022

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 is for the purpose of guiding tourism operations towards responsible planning, development and management of coastal tourism, to help ensure that the sector does not degrade important coastal areas, and that it makes a positive overall contribution to Pacific island countries and territories.
