Memorandum by the NCEA

Significant details

The World Bank supports the Government of Albania and Montenegro with capacity building on SEA. The World Bank has approached the NCEA to provide its expertise and services in SEA in a five-year capacity building programme.

One of the activities in the first phase of this cooperation was an assessment of the 'gaps' in current SEA capacity in Albania. The results of this gap assessment were presented in an advice of the secretariat. This memorandum discusses:

  • The legal background of SEA;
  • Available staff and institutional capacity on SEA;
  • Awareness-raising and training requirements on SEA;
  • SEA pilots, data management, and dissemination strategy and materials.

Based on this assessment, the memorandum proposes an outline for a multi-year SEA programme in Albania.

A similar memorandum was published for Montenegro.
