Advisory and Consultative Services
Curtin University provides a role in advisory and consultative services in EHIA/HIA to the Western Pacific Region and beyond.
Staff at Curtin University provide expertise and a strong role in the coordination of services relevant to Environmental Health Impact Assessment/Health Impact Assessment (EHIA/HIA) programs and research in the Western-Pacific Region and beyond. Our philosophy is to allow a coordinated approach in collaboration with hosting regions to prevent, mitigate or solve environmental health problems associated with social, economic or environmental factors impacting on community populations.
To achieve our aims, we have been designated a World Health Organisation (WHO) Collaborating Centre as a result of previous work that focuses on partnerships for activities such as education, research, training, and the provision of advisory and consultative services in environmental health impact assessment and related activities. Our Centre also plans, conducts, and evaluates EHIA research, communicating results at regional and International forums.
The Centre can:
- Provide support for the development of methods and approaches for activities in EHIA/HIA;
- Advise and assist on the development of training and educational programs in EHIA/HIA; and
- Provide specialized professional expertise in conducting EHIA/HIA
