To improve the efficiency and quality of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) review, document review has been added into the EIA process since 2014. Besides, according to Judgment No. 120 by the Supreme Administrative Court in 2013, the EIA review committee should give priority to deciding if the development activities need to undergo the second stage procedure of EIA. Consequently, more and more development activities are obliged or volunteer to undergo the second phase EIA. To respond to the increasing number of EIA review meetings, the main objective of this project is to assist with holding the EIA meetings, collect and organize the comments of each meeting.
During the operation period, this project assisted with holding 204 meetings and completed the tasks as follows: (1) collecting and organizing the comments of 211 document reviews, (2) drafting the conclusions of 90 meetings, (3) collecting and analyzing the comments of the EIA meetings held in 2014 and 2015, (4) setting up a mechanism to record and track the progress of scoping meetings, (5) writing off receipts of 164 meetings and 116 document reviews, and (6) taking the minutes of 146 meetings.
