The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) forms the backbone of the state's system of environmental protection. CEQA requires governmental agencies to evaluate and consider the environmental impacts of a broad variety of projects that they carry out or approve. Thus, CEQA has important ramifications for both public entities and the private sector. CEQA also provides for public involvement, making it an important tool by which citizens and interest groups can participate in government planning and decision-making. This two-day workshop presents the fundamentals of CEQA, with emphasis on the policies, procedures, and practices necessary to make it successful. The workshop is designed for anyone new to CEQA as well as those needing a comprehensive refresher and should be of particular interest to public officials, agency staff, project applicants, attorneys, consultants, and interested citizens.
