Strengths and weaknesses - Guinea ESIA system

14 October 2019

What are the strengths and weaknesses of Guinea's ESIA system? What to improve? As a first step the NCEA in cooperation with BGEEE,  the EA agency in Guinea carried out an ESY-MAPPING. This is a diagnostic tool to analyse key elements of the ESIA system. The participants in Guinea - sector ministries, NGOs, consultants, private sector and the EA-association REGUISE -  discussed in 2-days both the legal requirements and the practice in their country. Although some aspects of their system are valued positive, there is also room for improvement. The NCEA is looking forward to support this process upon official request from the authorities.
