After concluding a multi-annual (2008-2013) regional program to strengthen EIA systems through national associations for impact assessment professionals in Central Africa and the regional umbrella organisation SEEAC, the NCEA remains available to SEEAC for backstopping and technical assistance. To this end, the NCEA and SEEAC signed an MoU for the period 2014-2018, which was recently renewed in November 2021. The support includes coaching in support of the functioning and management of SEEAC, as well as technical backstopping.
Most of the technical cooperation focuses on the work done together with the COMIFAC, see also 7025-03.
In 2020 SEEAC elaborated a new guidance document on how health can be better taken into account within ESIAs. More information can be found under project number 7025-04.
