This electronic only publication contains the Second review of implementation of the Protocol on SEA (2013-2015), as adopted by the Meeting of the Parties to the Protocol on SEA at its third session (Minsk, 13–16 June 2017).  It examines responses to a questionnaire on countries’ implementation of the Protocol on SEA in the period 2013–2015. The Meeting of the Parties noted the findings of the review (presented in section I B of the Review) and requested the Implementation Committee of the Espoo Convention and the Protocol on SEA to take into account general and specific compliance issues identified in the Review when assessing compliance by Parties with their obligations under the Protocol.

In addition to constituting a valuable source of information for the Implementation Committee, the present Review also provides useful information for Parties wishing to strengthen their implementation of the Protocol, for States considering acceding to the Protocol in their legal and administrative preparations, and for others wishing to understand better how the Protocol is implemented in national legislation and applied in practice.
