Topic: Environmental impact assessment, Strategic environmental assessment
The aim of the event was to present the requirements of the Espoo Convention and its Protocol on SEA to national officials and experts and engage them in discussions about potential challenges in transposing those requirements into the national legislation.
A bilateral meeting on 30 April 2015 followed the round-table between the Ministry and the UNECE consultants to prepare amendments to the Law on State Ecological Expertise. The adoption of the amendments will foster accession of the Republic of Belarus to the Protocol on SEA and facilitate harmonisation of the national legislative framework with the requirements of the EIA and SEA Directives.
