The Environmental Impact Assessment and Management Strategy (EIAMS) for South Africa has been developed in order to address the shortcomings within the Integrated Environmental Management system and processes as identified in the ‘Review of Effectiveness and Efficiency of EIA in South Africa’ (Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism, 2010). A project steering committee (PSC) was established to drive the compilation of the strategy. The PSC included representatives of various sectors, comprising government, non-governmental organisations, the business sector, local government and the academic sector.
