provinces, is one the unique habitats in all around the world creating breathtaking and
picturesque landscape in this area. The instruction of a suitable road, considering
environmental issues, can turn this region to one of the tourist attraction centers in
Iran. By the way, apart from the foregoing advantage this proceeding will facilitate
transportation between capital cities of two important provinces, namely West
Azarbaijan and East Azarbaijan thereby pave the way for the progress of this region.
However even though, considering the vulnerable and sensitive ecosystems, the
implementation of this project will result in some deleterious effects from the
viewpoint of environmental and social-economic aspects. Therefore, environmental
impact assessment of this project is really inevitable. In this research the
environmental threats related to this project along with the effects of Uromieh lake
watershed on the construction of this road have been examined.
