Since 2013, the UNECE within the EaP GREEN framework has been supporting Armenia in developing the national SEA and EIA system within the "Greening Economies in the European Union's Eastern Neighbourhood" (EaP GREEN) project. SEA and EIA have been promoted within the EaP GREEN as tools to integrate green economy targets and other sustainability issues into strategic and project-related decision-making to ensure that environmental and health implications of decisions are taken into account before they are made.

The objectives of the final event are as follows:

  • To present the outcomes and results regarding SEA and EIA achieved within the EaP GREEN;
  • To summarize the key principles of efficient SEA and EIA practice and is benefits;
  • To discuss priorities and needs regarding further development of SEA and EIA system in the country.

The event is organized by the Ministry of Nature Protection of Armenia in cooperation with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) within the framework of the EaP GREEN.

The workshop will invite representatives of all relevant stakeholders - environmental and health authorities, planning agencies and institutes, local authorities, experts and practitioners, as well as representatives of NGOs.
