The need for environmental impact assessment (EIA) is stipulated by Brazilian environmental legislation. The purpose of the GCC/EIA Training Project was to help strengthen ineffective institutions by supporting the EIA process and related capacities of state and federal institutions, and by training individuals in key areas including federal and state governments, universities and non-governmental organizations. EPA activities focused on the delivery of training courses, on the development of guidelines for EIAs related to economic activities associated with forest clearing and mining and on technical assistance to conduct a pilot EIA.
