Initiative Description

GreenAlert is a Web platform which allows users to track environmental impact assessments (EIA) in their areas. Citizens can find their location to see the details of an EIA: the official ID, the project description, status of the development, and the government body responsible for authorising and monitoring the development. Citizens can also register for personalised alerts by just click the # on the right-hand corner of the map and GreenAlert will send them real-time notifications by email or SMS. As of October 2018 #GreenAlert had tracked about 8 688 EIAs around the country (Last updated 2017)
