Improving EIA regulations and drafting SEA regulations in Uganda
The NCEA visited Uganda from 25 April to 2 May to support the update of its EIA regulations and the drafting of SEA regulations. The work on the EIA regulations focused on the schedules specifying which projects require mandatory EIA and which projects require so-called project briefs. The working team included officials from the National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA), the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Energy, and local government. The work was financially and technically supported by a USAID-Uganda project for capacity building on environmental management in the oil and gas sector.
