Strategic environmental assessment

Strategic environmental assessments (SEAs) and environmental impact assessments (EIAs) effectively promote sustainable development by integrating green economy targets into strategic and project-related decision-making. Objectives under EaP GREEN are: conducting legislative reviews of SEA and EIA including legal drafting to promote the integration of SEA and EIA systems into national frameworks; delivering training workshops on the practical application of SEA/EIA procedures; and strengthening the administrative capacities of authorities in charge of environmental assessments.
