Although the environmental and social impact assessments (ESIAs) of projects are based mainly on government regulations, human rights and justice are taking this descipline into new ground. This is according to Tim Hart, principal scientist at Consulting engineers and scientists, SRK Consulting.  Hart was speaking at a conference of the International Association for Impact Assessment (IAIA) held in Durban recently. Hart presented a paper at the event, titled "full project cycle social impact assessment (SIA): Optimising social outcomes", describing work in progress to optimise ourcomes of social projects and investments in mining communities.
