Technical Assistance for Implementation of the By-Law on Strategic Environmental Assessment

12.02.2021

With our project implemented between 2014 - 2016 namely “Technical Assistance for Implementation of the By-Law on Strategic Environmental Assessment” we aimed to create institutional capacity and to #raiseawareness necessary for the implementation of By-law on SEA for all sectors.

#SEA pilot processes for the plans of four pilot sectors namely; #renewableenergy, #agriculture, #watermanagement and #regionalplanning were developed. SEA Sectoral Guidelines for the mentioned sectors, a specific Guideline for the implementation of SEA to IPA Operational Programmes and finally Draft By-law on SEA in line with the Directive 2001/42/EC have been prepared.

To enhance the #institutionalcapacity and implement, disseminate the by-law on SEA throughout the country in line with SEA Directive 2001/42/EC, we implemented “Supporting the Implementation of By-law on Strategic Environmental Assessment” project and finalized the SEA pilot processes for #agriculture and #coastalmanagement.

We believe that SEA is an important tool for integrating #environmentalconsiderations into the preparation and adoption of certain plans and programmes and serving to inclusion of the relevant environmental information into decision making.
