Organized in 1980, the IAIA has more than 1,600 members and represents more than 120 countries with the collective goal of protecting the earth and its environments and peoples. IAIA members include individuals and entities from many disciplines and professions including corporate planners and managers, public interest advocates, government planners and administrators, private consultants and policy analysts, university and college teachers and their students.
“The IAIA provides vital advocacy for a more sustainable world and will connect our team to a global network of impact assessment tools and resources. We look forward to contributing to this important community by adopting impact assessment best practices in all of SMEC’s infrastructure projects.”
