ABSTRACT

This study, focusing on the area expansion of limestone mines, identifies the problems ofEnvironmental Impact Assessment(EIA) and what impact the current problems exert on anothermines developing process. The legal relations analysis reveals that the Management of MountainousDistricts Act and other related laws effect on EIA process, especially the case of area expansion oflimestone mines excluded from EIA. However, these problems can create mismatch with the policygoal of EIA system and have a negative impact on the environment in the future. A series of indepthinterviews with managers in related agencies found that those agencies have been unawareof the seriousness of the problem. Without any strategy, negative result made by developmentactivities would get more serious and sustainable development may not be possible at all. In orderto solve these problems, government should modify the current interdependent legal provisionand create the incentive structure to participate actively related agency in the EIA system.
