The objective of the pilot project is to establish practice in the post-project analysis of projects subject to a transboundary EIA procedure and to improve cross-border dialogue between Belarus and Ukraine in monitoring and mitigating transboundary impacts. It also aims to improve practices for providing the public of concerned countries with access to information about transboundary environmental impacts.
The start-up workshop was 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.
