Continuing cooperation in Zanzibar
Cooperation between the Zanzibar Environmental Management Authority (ZEMA) and the NCEA will be continued. After conclusion of the previous two-year programme, the governments of Zanzibar and The Netherlands committed to another two years of working on ESIA. From the 20th to the 26th of February, the NCEA visited ZEMA to plan detailed activities. A joint assessment of the capacity of ZEMA’s EIA section was undertaken to help zoom in on priority areas. Proposed activities for the next two years include, among others, a workshop on financing of ESIA related tasks and an exchange session on ESIA review.
