The seminar took place on 20 January 2015. The aim 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 of the Russian Federation. Similar experience in other countries of the UNECE region was discussed.
