SEA for a land use plan of the Sourou in Mali

 

sourouThe Sourou is a landscape in Mali that revolves around the Sourou river. It has to deal with problems like unemployment, low productiveness, terrorism and increasing conflict over land. Local government started with the development of a land-use plan for this area, supported by the Dutch embassy. In order to assess the environmental and social impacts of the plan and to compare alternatives and facilitate participation, the steering committee of the plan would like to carry out an SEA. The NCEA provided a 2-day training on the implementation of this SEA. This was a follow-up workshop of a previous workshop held in November 2017.
