Wide-ranging and indepth specialized knowledge is needed in order to professionally evaluate the environmental relevance of a project or individual technical plans in the scope of cooperation activities, for example plans for locating industrial sites. The sixty environmental briefs in Volumes I and II provide an overview of potential environmental impacts and known environmental protection measures, they are a working aid when preparing and reviewing a project's environmental aspects and can be used during the planning phase, and also for the final evaluation. The areas covered : cross-sectoral planning, infrastructure, agriculture, mining and energy, trade and industry, are pertinent to all cooperation activities and planning work. Volume III gives an overview of the many environmental parameters and standards applicable in different countries, and facilitates the evaluation of individual environmental impacts.
