An International EIA typically evaluates the environmental, social and health impacts of projects, and is based on the guidelines of the World Bank, International Finance Corporation (IFC) and other international financial institutions. An International EIA is applicable to projects that obtain financing or loans from such financial institutions and to Chinese investment projects in other countries. It is a prerequisite for finance from banks following the Equator Principles. An ESHIA includes environmental, social and public health assessment, resettlement, stakeholder engagement and information disclosure, etc. By thoroughly identifying and analyzing overall impact of projects, proposing management measures, ESHIA ensures projects’ social and environmental sustainability.
