+In the process of applied EIA, actions relating to the avoidance,
+minimisation or reduction of project impacts as well as the
+compensation for an impact on a particular component of the
+environment are referred to as mitigation measures.  Keeping in mind
+that EIA is a tool to weigh negative and positive impacts against each
+other, mitigation may also include actions that promote or increase
+the benefitial effects of a proposed
+development \parencite{mitigation}.
