Environmental risk assessments. Environmental Risk Assessments have two components: Human Health Risk Assessment and Ecological Risk Assessment. It is an iterative process and provides the technical basis for evaluating the current environmental conditions and forecasting future conditions under specific scenarios

Public Participation 

The primary purpose of the public participation process is to bring about a more sustainable and equitable social environment. La Terra’s proven track record of accomplishment in PPP boasts the efficacy in this integral process of the EIA. Our approach to public participation is to inform, consult, involve, collaborate and empower the parties involved in a particular project. We will manage the entire public participation process throughout the project period. This also entails, although not limited to, indicating the stakeholder review periods and scheduled periods alongside the relevant information of the specific section where it is applicable. It is the only phase in the EIA process that does not qualify for an exemption application.

We assist clients with:

Identification of stakeholders and development of registers of I&APs

Compilation of Comments and Responses Reports (CRRs)

Announcing submissions
