Event description
EAPASA REGISTRATION ROADSHOW LAUNCH

About this Event

Background:

The field of Environmental Assessment is currently not regulated in the South Africa, which has in the past lead to poor environmental practice and outcomes, where relevant stakeholders could not participate meaningfully and the quality of the EIA reports were weak. Previous attempts to regulate Environmental Assessment Practitioner (EAPs) were not inclusive, which created further challenges with respect to alignment with the constitution and the National Environmental Management Act (NEMA, Act 107 of 1998 as amended).

Therefore, on 8 February 2018 the late Minister of Environmental Affairs, Dr Edna Molewa, appointed EAPASA as the only registration authority for Environmental Assessment Practitioners (EAPs) in South Africa. Since then EAPASA has embarked on provincial roadshows aimed at encouraging potential EAPs to register.

EThekwini Municipality’s Environmental Planning and Climate Protection Department (EPCPD) will be partnering with EAPASA for the launch of the online registration system and to be the first local authority to demonstrate the use of the online registration system. Such a partnership between the EPCPD and EAPASA is envisaged to provide a platform for capacity building and engagement between the registration authority, public, industry and EAPs within the Municipality will be valuable for all stakeholders and will ensure that environmental assessment practice improves.

In addition to the launch day, proposed for Tuesday 27th of November 2018 in eThekwini Municipality, the need for EAPs to register and how to register will also reach further stakeholders through the media. Within eThekwini Municipality, there are a number of radio stations that broadcast nationally, regionally and some community radio stations where interviews will be held.

Vuma 103 FM will be broadcasting the interview at 19:00pm on the 22nd November 2018. Listern Online at http://fmradiobuffer.com/vuma-fm-103-listen-live-online/
