Implementing the Espoo Convention and its Protocol on SEA in national legislation in Azerbaijan

2 March 2015

Baku

The activity was carried out with support of the EU funded Programme Greening Economies in the Eastern Neighbourhood (EaP-GREEN).

The round-table is organized by the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Azerbaijan and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe with the aim to discuss the draft Draft Law on Environmental Impact Assessment and to initiate its pilot application in the energy sector. 

With support provided by the Espoo Convention secretariat the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Azerbaijan improved the Draft Law on Environmental Impact Assessment (October - February 2015) and plans to submit it to the Government after the event. The adoption of the law will foster accession of the Republic of Azerbaijan to the Protocol on SEA and facilitate further harmonisation of the national legislative framework with the requirements of the appropriate EU Directives.

Representatives of relevant Ministries, local authorities, members of Parliament as well as representatives from NGOs, consultancy community and private sector are invited to take part at the event and express their opinion on the draft law.

The round-table will be followed by a 2 days workshop on practical application of the Draft Law in the renewable energy sector
