We are happy to announce that the Closure Meeting of the “Supporting the Implementation of By-Law on Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA)” project of IPA II period within the scope of Environment and Climate Action Sector Operational Programme was held online on the 11th of February, 2021.

This is the first project ever that has been completed within the Environment and Climate Action Sector of IPA II Period!

Türkiye introduced #SEA in its national legal framework by adopting the By-law on SEA, which entered into force in 8 April 2017. Through the project implemented by Eptisa, it is aimed to enhance institutional capacity and expertise of the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization and relevant institutions and to ensure #activeparticipation of local and national stakeholders (universities, NGOs, chambers and public) for SEA process to ensure the effective implementation of by-law on SEA in force in Türkiye since 2017.

SEA pilots conducted for #agriculture and #coastalmanagement sectors represented an important part of the project, as the SEA pilots provided a hand-on opportunity for relevant stakeholders to participate in practical application of SEA.
