SCOPING METHODOLOGY IN EIA PROCEDURES
The paper considers the problem of determining the amount and level of detail of the study in the procedures for assessing environmental impacts and strategic environmental assessment. Based on a deep analysis of the scoping process of international environmental assessment systems for planned activities for Internet resources and Internet portals, as well as modern Ukrainian environmental legislation, the author proposes a methodology for determining the scope and level of detail of the study in the procedures for assessing environmental impacts and strategic environmental assessment.
The process of determining the scope and level of detail of the research in the procedures for assessing environmental impacts and strategic environmental assessment is a particularly important and most important stage in the planning of environmental, environmental and environmental impact assessment work.
Determining the scope and level of detail of the study is scupping, a process designed to enhance the effectiveness of EIA and SEA procedures by identifying key issues, interests and alternatives that require research. This information will allow those responsible for the implementation of the ATS to properly target the research team to study significant issues. In addition, the systematic identification of tasks reduces the likelihood that an EIA and SEA report will have serious omissions, thereby avoiding delays associated with the need to process a report. Task definition is performed to ensure that time and money will not be wasted for collecting unnecessary raw data or performing unnecessary research, and important issues will not be missed.
The article also substantiates the results of scoping. The author proposes to compile a technical task for conducting an EIA and SEA based on scoping results.
Key words: scoping, environmental impact assessment, strategic environmental assessment, ecological assessment, subject of management.
