  • Date Wednesday, 16 May 2018

STRIX is present and exhibiting at IAIA18 Conference in Durban, South Africa.
The affiliate of the International Association for Impact Assessment in South Africa (IAIA-South Africa) is hosting the 38th session of the IAIA conference in Durban from 16 to 19 May 2018.
This year the theme for IAIA's conference is “Environmental Justice in Societies in Transition”, highlighting that globally, societies are in transition due to environmental challenges such as climate change, shifts in political power and social changes.
All these changes and challenges pose a threat to the sustainability of the physical and human environment, and growing inequality threatens both the social and natural environment.
IAIA was established in 1980 and brings together researchers, practitioners, and users of various types of impact assessment from all around the world.
This organization is the leading global network of best practice and use of impact assessment for informed decision making regarding policies, programs, plans, and projects. With about 1,800 members from 120 countries and regions, has affiliated 17 domestic societies of IA in the world. The activities of IAIA towards creating sustainable societies are well recognized by the United Nations and supported by major Official development assistance (ODA) organizations.
STRIX has a wide experience in environmental impact assessment with a strong focus on the mitigation of wind farm’s impacts on birds and bats.
We have developed a radar-based solution, Birdtrack, to meet the need for environmental compliance standards for wind energy project development in sensitive areas.
Birdtrack has been considered by several promoters, financial institutions and NGO as one of the most effective measures for bird mortality mitigation at wind farms, thus making the construction of wind farms compatible with the conservation of migratory birds.
