Third meeting of the EaP GREEN Steering Committee

8 October 2014


The third meeting of the EaP GREEN Steering Committee will take place in Minsk, Belarus on 8 October 2014. It will bring together the National Focal Points from the EaP countries, representatives of the civil society and relevant Regional Environmental Centres and the four EaP GREEN partners (OECD, UNECE, UNEP, and UNIDO). The key objective is to discuss progress with programme implementation and plans for the following year.

In addition, each Annual Steering Committee meeting features a thematic discussion. The 2014 meeting will focus on Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) as a tool for mainstreaming environment into economic development at a national and local level. The participants will further be invited to discuss challenges and lessons learned with regard to developing national legislative frameworks and practice for application of SEA in different economic sectors and geographical scales. The role of the international financial institutions will also be addressed.
