Ecological Network Impact Assessment

The ecological network impact assessment means a procedure used to assess whether there is a probability that the implementation of a plan, programme or project in the ecological network area, which by itself or in combination with other plans, programmes or projects, may have a significant impact on the conservation objectives and integrity of the ecological network area in respect of its structure and functionality. 

The procedure consists of three stages: 

  • Screening
  • Main assessment with the assessment of other alternative solutions
  • Establishment of overriding public interest and compensatory measures.
