Environmental Assessments

The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne Environmental Assessment(EA) process was created to ensure that the natural environment around Akwesasne could be protected and enhanced when various types of development is proposed. The EA process follows the order of the Ohen:ton Karihwatehkwen, The Words That Come Before, as a guide and how the project will affect each section. The EA process can help the proponent identify areas of the proposed project where harmful environmental impacts may occur and how to mitigate any issues that may arise.
