Introduction

In 2002, Lebanon adopted the Environment Protection Law No. 444 which established the framework for environmental regulation in the country. This law makes reference to environmental assessments and paved the way to adopt the EIA Decree No. 8633 (2012), the SEA Decree No. 8213 (2012), and associated ministerial circulars and decisions. The central authority responsible for EIA and SEA is the Ministry of Environment (MoE).
