National HIA Meeting 2013: HIA 101 Track

Screening: How to Choose an Appropriate Topic for Your HIA


This session will focus on the first step of HIA, screening, and how selecting an appropriate HIA project relates to the larger HIA process. Facilitators will review criteria for screening HIA projects, as well as examples of projects that have been successfully screened. Attendees will participate in a hands‐on exercise to apply HIA screening criteria to potential HIA projects.
