The GIWA environmental scaling and scoping methodology: a presentation and an EIA oriented evaluation
2001 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

A modified version of the Lee-Colley Environmental Statement Review Package is used to evaluate the environmental part of the GIWA scaling and scoping methodology. Since the approach of GIWA is new, and does not constitute a complete EIS, there is at present no method accurately applicable for the purpose of conducting an EIA-oriented evaluation. The modified method contains parts of the review package that are intact, as well as exchanged or modified parts. These exchanged or modified parts meet the relevant requirements from the Esbo Convention, the EC Directives on SEA and EIA, and the Convention on Biological Diversity. Applied on the GIWA methodology, the modified method aims at finding ways of strengthening the evaluated part when used in the future. The protocol from the scaling and scoping meeting for the Baltic Sea is used as a cas study to reveal parts in the methodology that require better explanation and where problems using the methodology have occurred. Examples like providing the possibility to amend features (e.g. water circulation) to the protocol and stressing the need for transparency in presented data, suggests that the GIWA scaling and scoping methodology still could be strengthened.
