Social and Environmental Planning


Successful projects require environmentally sound designing and socially acceptable implementation – an area to which we continue to contribute regularly as with our other areas of endeavor. Like other areas of its expertise, ARKITECHNO has been able to maintain itself in the forefront of consulting services by becoming a generator of new ideas, methods and techniques for social and environmental assessments. ARKITECHNO has carried out detailed in environmental, ecological and socio-economic investigations and has undertaken impact assessment for major infrastructure development schemes. ARKITECHNO can handle environmental and socio-economic issues to be addressed at various stages of projects from identifying strategic options to monitoring and evaluation on completion of projects. ARKITECHNO fully has regularly met, even gone beyond, the regulatory requirements of the MoEF, GoI, and funding agencies guidelines like The World Bank, The Asian Development Bank, CIDA and IL&FS for Environmental and Social assessments in development projects. ARKITECHNO undertakes environmental assessment of large infrastructure projects to assess projects potential environmental risks. This entails review of natural environment (air, water and land), human health and safety, and project-related social (involuntary resettlement, indigenous peoples, and cultural property), trans-boundary, and global environmental aspects. Design of environmental management plans, mitigation measures and social resettlement plans are some of the key areas of ARKITECHNO’s expertise.
