SIA e-learning


What are new developments in Social Impact Assessment (SIA)  thinking and practice? What are key ethical, human rights and legal issues in SIA practice? How to evaluate  SIA critically? What approaches can be used to ensure SIA commitments are implemented? Which tools are available to realise the potential of proponents to contribute to sustainability outcomes?  The 8-week online course offered by Community Insights Group and the University of Strathclyde covers  these and many other topics.

The course will build your practical knowledge in conducting SIA that conforms to IAIA’s International Principles for IA and Guidance for SIA, the IFC Environmental and Social Performance Standards, Good International Industry Practice (GIIP) and the United Nations Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights.
