There is interest, as expressed by the 2021 IAIA International Conference, in exploring the scientific, technological, and governance advancements towards efficiency and effectiveness in ESIA and decision-making.  Questions about the increase in the volume of data and the development of new tools and techniques in collecting data relating to the ESIA process are even more relevant for the post-ESIA phase of project development and satisfactory environmental and social governance through project implementation.  Without having a thorough understanding of the baseline environment, supported by scientific and evidence-based data, it is extremely difficult to a) determine project impacts, b) determine ESMP effectiveness, and c) develop meaningful monitoring and auditing programs.

The target audience is varied; we seek to engage anyone who is involved in monitoring or auditing project implementation. Those who will benefit include developers of monitoring and auditing programs or other compliance documents, environmental and social site officers, environmental and social monitors, regulatory authorities, independent auditors, company compliance auditors, contractors, developers, and supervisory engineering consultants.

The course will be structured so as to provide a balanced mix of presentations, discussions, case studies, and group work.
