Presentation and discussion at a one-day workshop back to back with a Working Group on EIA meeting of the results of an EC study on the relationship between the EC Directives on EIA and SEA that are relevant to the Convention and the Protocol.
Decision by the Working Group on EIA on items for further study, which may include preparation of a report on the substantive relationship between the Convention and the Protocol.
