Three training workshops on SEA will be organized in three border provinces of Belarus. The workshops aim to enhance understanding of and strengthen capacity for the implementation of the Convention on Environmental Impact Assessment in a Transboundary Context, and in particular the Convention’s Protocol on Strategic Environmental Assessment, in Belarus. Objective of the workshops is to improve participants understanding of the benefits of and possibilities for using SEA as a tool in strategic decision making and to enable participants to independently utilize SEA in their own work. Also representatives of provincial authorities from neighbouring States will be invited to follow the training to improve co-operation e.g. in land-use planning between border provinces.
The workshops are organized by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection of the Republic of Belarus, UNEP, UNDP and UNECE in the framework of the Environment and Security Initiative (EnvSec) project “Managing Environmental Security Risks with EIA and SEA”, and the “Greening economies in the Eastern Neighbourhood” (EaP GREEN) Programme.
