Recorded On: 11/13/2019

This webinar consists of four sections:

#1 - Introduction of the issue of community health and its determinants.

#2 - Case Study 1 - In the recent years, IOGP Companies mission are focusing not only on energy but also on a possible role in sustainable development of partner countries recognizing, in the general objective of the socio-economic development, the promotion of social/health welfare as an essential requirement. In this regard, a HIA (or ESHIA) could provide the opportunity to widen the situation analysis beyond the Industrial area of influence, and impacts mitigation purposes, converging on Public Social/Health needs of a given population in their wider administrative and/or territorial context. Therefore, the results of HIA could easily provide “food for thoughts” and the opportunity of integrating mitigation plans with wider and comprehensive Community Health initiatives, for instance, in a District or Province. Eni, based on its best practices, will present their internal process for identifying and managing health impacts as part of their ESHIA system and will illustrate its possible advantages and experience of this approach.
