Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is the process by which the anticipated effects on the environment of a proposed development or project are measured. If the likely effects are unacceptable, design measures or other relevant mitigation measures can be taken to reduce or avoid those effects. The document from this process is called an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The Ornithological Impact Assessment (OIA) is included in an EIS as part of the Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA).
