Social Impact Assessment for Wetlands



Social Impact Assessment (SIA) comprises the processes of analyzing,
monitoring, and managing the social consequences of planned
interventions (Vanclay 2003; Esteves et al. 2012). Planned interventions
can be projects, plans, programs, or policies. SIA arose alongside
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) in the early 1970s to be a form
of impact assessment focusing on the social (rather than biophysical
environmental) impacts (Vanclay 2014). However, whereas EIA is
required by law in most countries, relatively a few countries specifically
require SIA although some include the assessment of social impacts
within EIA. In the commercial world, social impacts are often assessed
within an integrated environmental, social, and health impact assessment
