The Environment Protection Act 2019, Environment Protection Rules 2020, and Local Government Operation Act 2017 require local governments to conduct and approve Brief Environment Study (BES) and Initial Environmental Assessment (IEE) reports for activities within their jurisdiction. The guidelines for these assessments, titled “Brief Environment Study and Initial Environmental Assessment Guideline 2079,” have been developed with support from NURP for JSMC. The guidelines aim to ensure that environmental assessments are carried out, and appropriate mitigation measures are implemented during the development of infrastructures and other initiatives within the jurisdiction of local governments. The draft guidelines have been submitted to JSMC for review.
