Introduction

EIA has been applied in Mozambique since 1993, but its legal framework was only set up in 1997 through the Environmental Law. Specific EIA regulations followed in 1998 which were replaced by new ones in 2004. Since then the country systematically develops its legislation on EIA and improves its capacity to implement it.
There are no legal provisions for SEA in Mozambique, but the Environmental Law requires EIA for PPPs. It is practiced since 2003 though and a legal framework for SEA is under development. The central authority responsible for EIA is the Ministry for Coordination of Environmental Affairs (MICOA) and its Provincial Directorates can also play an important role in it.
