ESYMAP workshop in the Gambia

30 November 2021

Last week we facilitated a very constructive and fruitful ESYMAP workshop in the Gambia, It was first workshop in the context of the ECOWAS EA-harmonisation programme to gain insight in the similarities and differences of EA legislation amongst the 15 member states. The timing of this ESYMAP workshop was perfect for the Gambia, since they are currently reviewing their EA legislation. The outcomes from the mapping will help the National Environmental Agency to prioritise what to change, adjust and improve. As a start, the participants want to set up an association of EA practitioners to support professional exchange and training.
