This article presents principles for best practice environmental impact assessment (EIA) follow-up. These are intended to guide development and capacity building amongst EIA practitioners. The article starts by defining EIA follow-up and identifying the principal stakeholders involved. The core values that should underpin EIA follow-up are provided which explain why EIA follow-up should be done. The principles then consider: who should be involved in EIA follow-up; what best practice follow-up entails; and how follow-up can be undertaken. The article ends with some challenges for practitioners. It is hoped that the principles will help in the consolidation of EIA follow-up internationally and encourage further improvement in this field.
