Renewed effort to introduce SEA in Jordan?

22 July 2019

Amman, 15-22 July - In the late 2000s there was a surge in SEA application in Jordan, but the instrument was never fully established. There now seems to be renewed interest in SEA. Therefore the Ministry of Environment, with support from the Dutch embassy, organised an SEA seminar for various sector ministries. The NCEA was asked to share SEA principles and cases, and their experiences with SEA introduction programmes. At the end of the day the participants concluded that SEA should be further pursued. The Ministry will prepare for the next steps.
