Abstract
The disastrous consequences towards the environment have pushed political and economic decision-makers to linger on the impacts that their decisions may have on the environment. Thus, any economic project must be the subject of a number of studies including the environmental impact assessment (EIA) to identify and evaluate potential consequences that could harm the environment while offering solutions to mitigate the negative impacts and maximize positive impacts. Despite a few shortcomings, the scrupulous respect of this identification and evaluation work which is an effective tool for taking into account of environmental considerations should allow the preservation of the environment. But, this is not the case; its rigorous application is often subject to numerous exceptions in developing countries such as Congo Brazzaville, causing disastrous consequences after the completion of large-scale projects. By using observation on the ground and documentary research, this article aims to study the impacts of economic decisions on the environment of Brazzaville.
