1 November 2022

The NCEA visited Suriname to support the National Institute for Environment and Development (NIMOS) with the development of ESIA guidelines for offshore oil and gas development. These guidelines concern specifically the exploitation phase and follow on guidelines for the exploration phase, developed in 2020. Next step is to continue in 2023 with stakeholder consultations on these guidelines. The initiative is (financially) supported by WWF Netherlands and WWF Guianas.
