Most environmental problems encountered in the world; Regional or global effects increase when they come together even though they are not very important or if they have a more limited significance, such as climate change, decreased usable water, urban livelihoods are difficult due to environmental and social factors.
When creating a project, the activity of that project and its impact on the environment and human beings are determined. After determining to what extent the effect of the activity or activities is determined, it is also necessary to determine the effect that will arise from the activities, projects or houses around. When a positive or negative evaluation is made based on the impact of the project that will be done or done alone, an incomplete evaluation is made. In evaluating the impacts of the planned or completed project, the evaluation of the other planned facilities or the facilities already built by adding them directly to the impact areas is called cumulative impact assessment. MACOM Environment and Energy prepares the cumulative impact assessment for you with its highly experienced staff as well as evaluating the effects of the individual activity in your modeling projects.
Cumulative Impact Assessment should be applied for all types of studies such as air quality modeling, noise and acoustic impact modeling, wind energy turbines, solar projects.
It focuses on cumulative impact assessment in the World Bank-IFC and the European Union Directive. IFC PS1: Assessment and Management of Environmental and Social Risks and Impacts, the cumulative effect is mentioned. With its experience gained from national and international projects, MACOM Environment and Energy creates its reports in accordance with the IFC Guide especially in international projects and is very sensitive in this regard. For national projects, we use both our own legislation and the standards of organizations such as EBRD, such as IFC.
Scope of cumulative impact assessment in the Good Practice Note: Cumulative Impact Assessment and Management -Guidance for the Private Sector in Emerging Markets, published by the World Bank-IFC in 2013. It’s mentioned about taking both social and environmental elements.
When making a Cumulative Impact Assessment, it is necessary to determine the scope and environmental and social impacts of the project as well as determining which stage or stages of the project to be carried out first will have a valuable impact. After the first phase is over, whether the surrounding elements (facility or human) has a direct or indirect value or potential effects are determined. Another step is to create a cumulative effect by adding the effects determined by other facility or people to the current project effects whose effects are determined. Then, the importance of these cumulative effects is determined and evaluated. The evaluation should be done in terms of compliance with the national and international legislation according to the scope of the project. According to the information received from you, MACOM Environment and Energy provides services in the best quality for the correct results according to the scope of your projects. In the next step, the management of the Cumulative Impact Assessment, that is its implementation. As a result of the cumulative impact assessment, necessary methods should be given in order to eliminate and minimize negative effects. MACOM Environment and Energy carries out all the mentioned stages in detail with its expert staff. We provide reliable service by experts with many years of experience in legislation, Impact Assessment Reports, modeling and mitigation methods.
