Discuss roles and responsibilities of a lead agency, responsible agency and trustee agency. Study the differences between a Negative Declaration and EIR. Learn how to use an initial study to streamline analysis, and how to determine direct, indirect, and cumulative impacts. Explore the impact of case law on CEQA documents, the role of public participation, and other topics including climate change and water supply. Read case studies that illustrate current CEQA issues, and conduct a review of a project.
