dc.description.abstractImproving environmental assessment by adopting good practices and tools of multi-criteria decision analysis (IMPERIA) is a partially EU-financed (LIFE+) project aiming to recognize and develop new tools and practices for EIA and SEA. The main objective of IMPERIA is to enhance exchange of knowledge, dialogue and influence of stakeholder participation in EIA and SEA processes, and thus increase the satisfaction of public, project executors and authorities. Project exploits the knowledge of different partner and co-operation organizations as the consortium brings together experts from Finnish Environment Institute, University of Jyväskylä, University of Oulu and two consultant companies. The goal of the project is to produce usable methods and practices, and efficiently enhance their use in practice. New MCDA and internet-based tools are developed for EIA and SEA and applied in three pilot projects. Practices, tools and guidelines are developed with special focus on applicability of these in practice, increasing public interest to EIA and SEA, and enhancing the effectiveness and usefulness of the processes.en
