Environmental Assessment

The Environmental Assessment Topic Area aims to support the development of national environmental assessment (EA) systems by assisting administrations, experts and civil society in their efforts to improve EA legislation, institutional setups, knowledge, skills and practical implementation. The EA Topic Area also assists governments in adhering to relevant international agreements, most notably the Convention on Transboundary Environmental Impact Assessment (Espoo, 1991) and its Protocol on Strategic Environmental Assessment (Kiev, 2003), and supports the overall implementation of these agreements. Since its establishment, the EA Topic Area has implemented an extensive number of projects, resulting in internationally acclaimed outputs.
