Assistance to Government in reviewing Environmental Impact Assessment and Management Project (EIAMS) – DWEA 2011
The Green Connection was contracted by the Department of Environmental Affairs from February to August 2011 to help provide input and research into revising and improving the current EIAM process. The Green Connection worked on three different focuses:
– Status quo and recommendations for improvement of the demographic representivity of the EIA sector
– Cooperative governance of EIAM
– Empowerment of marginalised communities
In 2015, The Green Connection, in partnership with the University of Cape Town – IES, ran an environmental management course for international tertiary level students. The Green Connection assisted in designing, implementing and evaluating the course.
