SEA legislation adopted in Bangladesh
Dhaka, 9-11 October 2018. Following a growing number of countries, also Bangladesh has now adopted SEA legislation. There are currently 3 SEA's planned in the near future:
- an SEA for regional planning for South West Bangladesh and the Sundarbans;
- an SEA for developments of deep sea ports;
- an SEA for a development plan for the Gulf of Bengal.
The Ministry of Environment, dept of Forestry asked NCEA’s support for the SEA for Sundarbans, which will be starting at the beginnig of 2019. Good cooperation between ministries and donor organisations on these SEA’s will definitely strengthen SEA practice.
