The level of interaction in between thedifferent elements present around is relatively low. The changes incorporated by the naturalenvironment do have a massive impact on human civilization. More significant changes areincorporated due to civilization and interaction with the environmental components (Glasson,Therivel and Chadwick, 2013). The environmental needs are absorbed by involvement in a goodway. A positive reception of cultural and philosophical history provides an indulgence of EIA.
At present there is no single reason for the development of modern society's rising concern forthe environment. Still, the significant point is that these concerns exist, and have been compiledfor managing assessment procedures (Wathern, 2013). Some legislations relating toenvironment has been enacted. They are focus on managing general environmental awareness.This is important for managing the environmental aspects to gain high priority on an individualpart. The consequence is that they are not compared on an equal footing with economic issues.Environment Impact Assessment is an attempt to restore the disparity. The theoretical practice ofimpact assessment is addressed in detail to address the ongoing environmental issues.Nevertheless, it should be remembered that the process is effective to manage the plan in a betterway. Eventually, the willingness to think about the consequences of actions is undertaken forgaining impact. In other words, Environmental impact assessment ensures the environmentaleffectiveness. The Individuals are allowed to accept the responsibility in order to accept theeffects of a proposal. They do not depend on the Regulations and bureaucracies. The report isbased on EIA Improvement Project in NSW (Petts, 2009).History of Environment Impact AssessmentThe history of Environment Impact Assessment is linked with the US National environmentalPolicy Act in 1970 creating a mandatory requirement. The EIA was introduced at the state levelprior before the implementation at the Common level. Every state has a divergent opinion aboutit. The pioneer state introducing EIA was New South Wales by issuing guidelines in StatePollution Control Commission in 1974. Australia is following the EIA at a national level throughEnvironment Protection (Impact of Proposals) Act in 1974. At present, the EnvironmentProtection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC) is prevailed in the countrysuperseding the previous act. The commonwealth act does not put a direct impact on the law
