Résumé
Public participation in environmental impact assessment (EIA) is an important aspect, which is not well integrated in Afghanistan due to several reasons. Environmental law and EIA regulations are emplaced in Afghanistan with particular emphasis on public participation in the EIA process, yet implementation remains a challenge. Public participation is not always addressed in conducting EIA studies due reasons such as lack of technical capacity, weak institutions, inefficient regulation, weak compliance and enforcement, and weak political will. This research intends to analyse public participation in the EIA process of industrial parks development in Afghanistan, and digs deep to identify the obstacles for meaningful public participation an assessment criteria is selected to assess the effectiveness of public participation in the EIA process. For this research a case approach is selected, data is mainly collected through semi structured interviews, through literature review of international, national, case study reports and relevant government official documents. The results of this research reveal that public participation in the EIA process on industrial parks is not well integrated due to poor coordination between stakeholders due to absence of any lead responsible authority on the EIA process. Moreover, the results of assessment criteria also reveal that public hearing and stages of public involvement were partially fulfilled in the case study that mainly affects the project sustainability and delay of projects
