Review of Georgia’s new EIA/SEA legislation
The NCEA has reviewed a draft of Georgia’s new EIA and SEA legislation. Findings were discussed in an expert meeting in Tbilisi (19 May), followed by a meeting for public stakeholders (20 May). The development of this new legislation is supported by UNECE and EaP GREEN. The draft law for SEA will be tested through the development of an SEA (supported by UNECE) for the National Waste Management Strategy (supported by the EU). The legislation, the SEA and the Strategy are planned to be ready for approval by the end of 2015. The NCEA will provide guidance on implementation of the SEA and the synergy with the Strategy.
