The purpose of the ECOWAS Environmental and Social Impact Assessment Guidelines for Power Generation and Transmission is to facilitate preparation and evaluation environmental and social impact assessment studies with respect to national and supra-national electrification projects, and, in particular, those dealing with construction and operation of thermal power generation units, hydroelectric schemes and transmission lines.

The Guidelines provide a detailed overview of an ESIA process, its role and place in the decision-making process, methodology and specific environmental issues relating to electric power transmission and generation projects.
