The Arctic Council Sustainable Development Working Group requests participation in their questionnaire on good practice in environmental impact assessment (EIA) and public participation in the Arctic. Organizers seek examples of good practice from EIA projects undertaken across the Arctic circumpolar region.
The questionnaire will remain open until 31 October 2017.

The purpose of the questionnaire is to identify and collect good practices in order to share and refine them into good practice recommendations for how EIA should be conducted in the Arctic. The questionnaire is targeted to all EIA stakeholders, including Indigenous peoples, Arctic residents and communities, authorities, developers, consultants, non-governmental organizations, scholars, and any other interested participants.

Participants who would prefer to complete the questionnaire via telephone interview, rather than submit a written response, may contact the project coordinator, Päivi A. Karvinen (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., +358-50-308-0194).

Responses will be analyzed by the Arctic EIA project's Editorial group. Reporting of the results of the questionnaire will happen on a general level and will not be connected to the personal information of the respondent.

Input deadline: 31 October 2017
