Sub-regional Workshop on the Practical Application of Strategic Environmental Assessment and Transboundary Environmental Impact Assessment

26 - 27 October 2020

Within the framework of the EU-funded EU4Environment programme (2019 – 2022), UNECE is assisting Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine in comprehensive capacity-building and institution building on SEA and transboundary EIA and in finalizing legal reforms in this area.

Two subregional events with a focus on SEA and transboundary EIA are to be organized by UNECE under EU4Environment: a workshop in 2020 followed by a subregional event in 2022. The subregional workshop will be organized on 26-27 October 2020 as a virtual event. It will build on the results, progress and lessons learnt by the countries in the development of their SEA and EIA systems in line with the UNECE Protocol on Strategic Environmental Assessment, Convention on Environmental Impact Assessment in a Transboundary Context, the EU Directive on SEA and the EU Directive on EIA. Selected topics of interest/issues identified by the countries in a survey will be further addressed. The workshop will be facilitated by UNECE international consultants on SEA and EIA.

The subregional workshop will:

·       facilitate information exchange and experience sharing on SEA and transboundary EIA among the six beneficiary countries and with the EU/UNECE countries;

·       address topical issues identified by the beneficiary countries for the workshop, along with examples of international good practices in SEA and transboundary EIA.

The workshop will gather representatives of government authorities and entities, and other relevant stakeholders from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. 

Simultaneous interpretation in English and Russian will be provided.
