Protocol on Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA)

Resource Manual to Support Application of the Protocol on SEA

Draft Final


Development process

The third meeting of the Parties to the Convention, including the first meeting of the Signatories to the Protocol on SEA, agreed to include in its workplan an activity on the production of a capacity development manual to support implementation of the SEA Protocol (see decision III/9).

The activity has been led by REC-CEE with the support of the UNECE secretariat and with inputs from WHO/Euro and a small editorial group comprising Austria, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, the European Commission and UNDP/RBEC. This 'draft final' is being made available to elicit comments pending a decision on the Manual by the Meeting of the Signatories.

The Draft Final Manual will be presented to the third meeting of the Signatories to the Protocol, the date of which has yet to be determined.
