Socio-economic Impact Assessment

Praxis has tackled a range of social, economic and cumulative effects impact assessments for both large and small scale projects. Complimenting our work on impact assessments, we also offer our clients expertise in benefit-cost analysis, non-market valuation, and human use and environmental quality studies.

Through SEIAs the Praxis team can provide project planners, community leaders, and government decision-makers with information they can use in weighing the potential impacts of a project.
