The negligence of development impacts in recent decades has imposed serious problems to great projects due to inattention to the environment. To this end, a positive movement towards the assessment of strategic development effects has been triggered in recent years. This study aims to identify and prioritize executable development projects in the area of drinking water dam of Ilam with the priority of assessing environmental impacts. It is an applied study in terms of objective and a descriptive-analytical study in terms of method. The study population consists of two qualitative and quantitative sections. Experts who are familiar with related issues, problems and impacts of dam making projects constitute the first section while the second one covers specialists who are familiar with the drainage basin of dam. The samples of both sections were selected using purposive sampling method.
