Introduction

Guinea’s Environmental Code of 1987 introduced EIES. It was elaborated in a decree issued in 1989. In 2013 a General Guide for the Realisation of ESIAs was adopted by ministerial decision. In 2019, the environment ministry started a project to update the national ESIA system and to add SEA requirements. The current ESIA system has a particularity that the responsible sectoral authority initially acts as intermediary between a proponent and the ESIA authority. The “Bureau Guinéen d’Études et d’Évaluation Environnementale” (BGEEE) manages the procedure with a Comité Technique d’Analyse Environnementale (CTAE) – an ad hoc committee with representatives of ministries and NGOs.
