Introduction

EIA is a mandatory legal requirement in Pakistan since 1st July 1994. SEA has no legal basis, but is identified as important tool for planning in the National Environmental Policy 2005.

In the period from 2011 until 2014, the EA system in Pakistan is undergoing major changes. With the 18th amendment of the Pakistani constitution, responsibilities for environmental management are devolved to the regional level. As a consequence, the provinces and independent regions in Pakistan draft their own EIA/SEA regulation.
