Panama: Less Requisites for "low impact" Constructions
Any projects in Category 1 will no longer require environmental impact studies (EISA for its Spanish acronym), those studies will be substituted by the use of "Good practices guides".

For the approval and execution of constructions in Categories 2 and 3, the environmental impact studies will stay.
Three construction projects were halted and more than 50 land-strips illegally divided into building plots were uncovered when Costa Rican environmental inspectors launched a second raid in the popular tourist zone of Guanacaste.
In the first seven months of the year the value of approved construction projects amounted to $918 million, 45.3% more than in the same period last year.
The measure will be maintained until an infrastructure report is prepared in the district to develop a proper urban planning strategy.
The Department of Planning and Permits received 407 applications in January and February, 52 more than during the same period last year.
