The national seminar was organized to discuss the draft results of a technical advice project on EIA in a transboundary context in Georgia. The technical advice consisted of (a) a review of the present national legislation and institutional structure; and (b) of development of recommendations for required legislative amendments to implement the Espoo Convention. The technical advice was provided to Georgia in the framework of the “Greening economies in the Eastern Neighbourhood” (EaP GREEN) Programme.
Based on the discussion during the round table and comments received, the Legislative review on EIA in a transboundary context was finalized and handed over to the Ministry of Environment Protection of Georgia to be utilized in the development of national legislation.
