SEA review workshop in Rwanda
12-16 November, Rubavu - Rwanda is in the process of regulating SEA. The environment agency REMA has asked the NCEA to help develop its capacity to administer it. In a first joint activity, the NCEA facilitated a review workshop focusing the Sebeya catchment plan, in which SEA elements are embedded. Jointly, the plan developers and the plan reviewers defined a review framework, looking at which SEA elements are crucial for decision making on the plan. This cooperative approach was much appreciated by both parties. The actual review - carried out by REMA with assistance of the NCEA - is expected shortly.
