- Explicating responsibilities in SEA;
- Presenting the Unified Register of SEA.
Overall, as part of the series of the SEA training workshops with a focus on Ukraine’s urban planning, the second workshop will further contribute to the strengthening of the institutional capacity for SEA at regional and local levels and support relevant departments/units of regional and local authorities in using the SEA more effectively for greening Ukraine’s post-war urban reconstruction efforts. The event will include interactions with the target audience in the form of guided discussions, Q&A, interactive Mentimeter-based polls/surveys etc.
