Gulf of Kachchh: A Framework for the Cumulative Environmental Impact Assessment
The CEIA project describes a broad framework for developing a comprehensive impact assessment that accounts for current and anticipated pressures on the ecosystem. The framework consists of five steps: 1.) Describing the key features and values, 2.) Identifying and quantify major pressures on the environment and values, 3.) Examining and describe the current state of the environment, 4.) Quantifying past and existing pressures and determine linkages to impacts, and 5.) Integrating the results into adaptive management.
