Mission

​NZAIA is a community of impact assessment specialists and supporters. The Association’s activities embrace the full range of IA practices, from social, health and cultural impact assessment to ecological impact assessment, at project, plan and policy levels, and within a variety of statutory and non-statutory contexts. Our membership reflects this wide and diverse community of impact assessment practitioners.

Our Aims

  1. To promote the practice of impact assessment in the formulation and implementation of developments and policy proposals in New Zealand and the Pacific. 
  2. To promote research and consultation practices which identify the full range of social, cultural, economic and environmental effects of proposed policies and projects, and the measures to address those effects. 
  3. To promote impact assessment that recognises and accommodates different social and cultural values, including those of indigenous peoples. 
  4. To promote and encourage a high standard of practice among members of NZAIA and others using impact assessment methods. 
  5. To promote and support the development of impact assessment theory, tools and methods in New Zealand and the Pacific. 
The organization has no registered commitments.

The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform allows stakeholders to inform the public about their work on DRR. The SFVC online platform is a useful toolto know who is doing what and where for the implementation of the Sendai Framework, which could foster potential collaboration among stakeholders. All stakeholders (private sector, civil society organizations, academia, media, local governments, etc.) working on DRR can submit their commitments and report on their progress and deliverables.'|t }}
