Understand the essential role in crafting compliant mitigation programs and how adaptive management frameworks are being used.

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) was enacted to promote efforts that will prevent or eliminate damage to the human environment. Mitigation measures can help to accomplish this goal in several ways. Many Federal agencies and applicants include mitigation measures as integral components of a proposed project's design. Agencies also consider mitigation measures as alternatives when developing Environmental Assessments (EAs) and Environmental Impact Statements (EISs). This topic will help impact assessment practitioners understand the key role of mitigation in the NEPA process, and the key regulatory requirements for creating effective mitigation measures. The material will explain how monitoring plays an essential role in crafting compliant mitigation programs, and how adaptive management frameworks are increasingly being used by federal agencies in crafting their mitigation and monitoring programs. This information is critical for NEPA practitioners seeking to understand the proper role of mitigation in the impact assessment process and the most effective way of using mitigation and monitoring in a legally-compliant manner.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to define the five key types of mitigation measures.
  • You will be able to describe how mitigation and monitoring fit into the NEPA process.
  • You will be able to discuss the interrelationship between mitigation, alternatives, and essential project design features.
  • You will be able to explain the proper use of mitigation in for Environmental Assessments (EAs) and Findings of No Significant Impacts (FONSIs).
