Introduction

The Environmental Management Act (EMA) of 2004 provides the legal framework for both, EIA and SEA. While national environmental assessment and audit regulations have been issued in 2005, the SEA process was further specified in 2008. The central authority for EIA and SEA is the National Environmental Management Council (NEMC) which operates under the Environmental Department in the Ministry.
