ESIA review workshop - Guyana

18 November 2019

Georgetown - The Environmental Protection Agency is expecting an increase of ESIAs in the oil sector because of the recent discovery of large quantities of oil. They asked the NCEA to support them with the strengthening of their ESIA review practice. During a 3-day workshop - in cooperation with WWF Guyana - we covered the principles of good practice review using recent cases in the oil and mining sector. "The training helped me to be more efficient in ESIA review. I now better understand the overall structure on how to go about the review as a team.” As one the participants said.
