Accounting for Cumulative Effects in the NEPA Process

Trainer: Deborah Hall


In 1997, the Council on Environmental Quality published "Considering Cumulative Effects Under the National Environmental Policy Act." For the first time since the passage of NEPA, this handbook provides a framework for advancing the state of the practice. This two and one-half day workshop will review cumulative effects concepts and principles, scoping tehniques, baseline condititions and information sources and methods for effects identification and prediction. Examples of cumulative effects analysis with possible appropriate responses will be presented.
