ADIP aims providing A1 development impact assessment reviews in transport, traffic, environment, fiscal and socio-economic fields’ .Substantial concentration has been given to the possible impacts of growth and development on communities throughout the world in recent years, specifically in urban areas. Generally, development has been viewed as healthyand desirable for communities since it often leads to additional jobs: increased income for residents; a broader tax base; and the improvement of cultural facilities such as libraries and parks. However, communities are increasingly aware that development might also be associated with cost such as increased fiscal expenditures for necessary public services and infrastructure, traffic, congestion, consumption of local natural resources, loss of open space and unique cultural attributes. Additionally, growth decisions are too often made without adequate knowledge of the consequences of those decisions on overall community well-being. Since changes is essential for ensuring that growth is in harmony with the long-range goals of the community and the nation at large.
Development impact evaluation provides a context for addressing this matter. The evaluation procedure is a vital part of the planning process as it provides extensive documentation of the projected economic, fiscal, environment, social and transportation- related impacts of a particular development on a city/town or community. ADIP is a division of A-One, which has taken upon itself to be the continental benchmark for infrastructural development impact evaluation. The division has a strong team for the efficient execution of such evaluation and assessment tasks. The ability to set up task-oriented skills matrix from its rich and relevant‘s reservoir’ makes ADIP one of the best in Africa.
