Developing the SEA system of Mozambique
Mozambique is developing its SEA system. With support from the NCEA, the environmental ministry (MITADER) drafted Terms of Reference for an SEA core team and for a consultant who will develop tailor-made SEA guidance. Moreover, meetings took place with various sector ministries, such as the ministries of water and energy, to identify their interest in application of SEA. Early next year, a second SEA workshop will be organised by MITADER with assistance from the NCEA, WWF and SIDA/NIRAS.

ESIA & SEA workshops in Surinam and Guyana
Guyana and Surinam aim to improve their ESIA and SEA systems. IUCN-NL, WWF and their local partners want to contribute to this, in the framework of the ‘Shared Resources, Joint Solutions’ programme. The NCEA was asked to organise workshops in both countries, titled “Making SEA and ESIA work for oil and gas development”. The 3-day workshop in Surinam and 2-day workshop in Guyana were both well attended by representatives of government, private sector and NGOs. Priorities identified in these workshops were discussed in follow-up meetings in both countries, to plan future ESIA or SEA related activities.
