Establishment of network EIA administrations Central Africa

2 June 2014


Libreville, Gabon – May 2014. The Economic Union of Central African States (ECCAS) will initiate the creation of a network of EIA administrations, the RACEEAC. The establishment of RACEAAC is a long-lasting wish of the EIA administrations. It will provide opportunities for cooperation and harmonisation of EIA regulation. The agreement to create RACEEAC was formalised last month in a meeting with the Secretariat for Environmental Assessment in Central Africa (SEEAC) and the NCEA. The SEEAC, accompanied by the NCEA will provide technical support in the coming years.
