The Federal Government of Nigeria promulgated the EIA Decree No. 86 of 1992 (now EIA Act Cap E12 LFN 2010) as a demonstration of her commitment to Environmental Sustainability. The EIA Act has been in operation in Nigeria for over two decades. In the course of implementing this Act, a number of gaps, omissions and inconsistencies have been observed. New and emerging issues in EIA processes and implementation have evolved world-wide which warrants the need to revise the existing EIA Act
In view of the foregoing and in order to update the EIA Act and expand the scope of its coverage in line with current global trends, a Ministerial Committee was set up by the Honorable Minister of Environment to review the Act. Presently, a draft revised EIA Act document has been produced.
A National Stakeholders Workshop for validation of the draft revised EIA Act document has been scheduled to take place in Abuja.
