Implementing Environmental Impact Assessment

Institute for International Law of Peace and Armed Conflict

Predicting environmental impacts of their actions is vital for NGOs to meet their sustainability aspirations.

The Institute for International Law of Peace and Armed Conflict (IFHV) invites you to the online training “Implementing Environmental Impact Assessment " from September 19th to 20th 2023. The training is part of a joint project by the IFHV of Ruhr-University Bochum and VENRO.

Target group

The training is targeted at staff (especially programme coordinators) of German humanitarian NGOs and their partner organisations with a specific interest in ecological concerns. Prior knowledge on the topic is not required.



In the two-day intensive training, the participants will learn what Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) approaches are and how to improve their projects with these. They will critically identify the strengths and weaknesses of the different methods and learn how to implement EIA in their work.



The training will be led by experienced trainers and humanitarians Andrea Dekrout, Gavin Reynolds and Caroline Gardestedt. All trainers have years of experience in Green Response and have worked with UNEP, Red Cross, the EU and CARE. Thus, they cannot only draw on their methodological expertise but have also gained extensive experience in the field.



Registration and the preliminary agenda can be found on the course page here. Participation is free of charge. Given that the number of participants is limited, we kindly ask you to answer a brief motivation statement upon registration. The training will be held in English.
