ESCOBAR, Elsa Matilde  and  LEON GOMEZ, Roberto. The Role of Engineering and Engineering Science in Environmental Licensing: A Civil Society Perspective. [online]. 2015, n.43, pp.90-95. ISSN 0121-4993.

In this article, we shed light of civil society's perception of environmental licensing in Colombia. We believe it is important to consider environmental impact assessment as an integral part of a process that adds value to a project. For this reason, we discuss some key principles and discuss the problems that arise. Finally, from an engineering perspective, we propose some solutions to make environmental licensing more effective.
