The only process requiring public comments has been opened and stakeholders are invited to submit comments and inputs on the Draft SKA1_MID Integrated Environmental Management Plan. This is therefore an urgent call to all those affected in the SKA areas.
The CSIR has undertaken to do a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of the South African mid-frequency array of SKA Phase 1 (SKA1_MID), commissioned by the Department of Environmental Affairs.
Public comments are now requested on the Draft SKA1_MID Integrated Environmental Management Plan during a period of 30 days, from Wednesday, 1 February 2017 until Friday, 3 March 2017. Please submit comments and inputs by 3 March 2017.
The Draft SKA1_MID Integrated Environmental Management Plan is available:
