Improvement of the environment in an EIA study is not a sole objective but also should need to serve the purposes of poverty alleviation, gender balance and in a wider sense, regional economic development. The main objective, making poverty alleviation in a project would require the broad range of poverty related indicators like land ownership, education, employment or nutrition etc need to be addressed. Similar reasoning is valid for gender balance, gender mainstreaming and regional economic development. This study developed Inclusion of all these indicators is clearly beyond the scope of the future project, which is limited to technical interventions.
