2.To generate mitigation options that can be used to reduce (or completely eliminate) the negative impacts of the project during construction;
3.To generate technical schemes which must be added to the engineering design of the project
4.To generate mitigation options that can be used to reduce or completely eliminate negative impacts associated with the operation of the system after construction;
5.To develop an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) that must be in place to ensure continuous environmental soundness throughout the project lifetime;
6.To produce a report which can be used as an effective basis for the issuance of an environmental clearance certificate by FMENV?
