How can impact assessment create confidence for all participants? Clear and transparent policies, strong partnerships, and effective participation and consultation ensure credibility and predictability. When all parties have confidence in the process, impact assessment can support collaboration, improve outcomes and support sustainable economic development. When process confidence is low, it can create conflict and an overall erosion of trust, leading to uncertain outcomes.
