To Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the SEA Directive and the Entry into Force of the SEA Protocol and to Evaluate Progress in Europe and Internationally
This SEA conference is a special global IAIA thematic meeting separate from IAIA’s Annual Conference.
The conference is follow up on the successful global theme conference on SEA held in Prague in 2005 (Prague I). It is being held to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the introduction of the EC SEA Directive and the coming into force of the UNECE SEA Protocol.
Now is an opportune time to review progress with SEA implementation in member states and Europe-wide and assess the prospects for future work under the SEA Protocol.
Although it will have a strong European focus, the conference will also consider major trends and developments in SEA that have occurred internationally, recognizing that much has happened in the interim period since Prague I and particularly in the area of development cooperation.
The conference will provide a forum for discussion among planners and impact assessment professionals, government officials, researchers and NGO leaders.- See more at: http://www.iaia.org/specialmeetings/prague11/#sthash.2ipZn7V2.dpuf
