Abstract

This review of the Philippine Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) System has a three-fold objective. First, it aims to determine whether the existing EIS System meets the international practice for environmental assessment. Second, it aims to assess the efficiency and effectiveness of the system in terms of protecting the environment and promoting balanced socio-economic development through regulation and improved project planning. Third, it hopes to come up with concrete action programs to address gaps and weaknesses of the system vis--vis international practice and to set the agenda for reform toward a more efficient and effective system.
