SEA distant learning course in Bolivia

The NCEA, with technical assistance of ITC-Enschede, has developed an SEA distant learning course. The course is hosted by the Universidad Loyola. The development of this course is one of the last activities financially supported by the Dutch Embassy in La Paz, before its closure in the coming year. The NCEA has been involved with the Bolivian Ministries of Environment and Water and Energy with SEA capacity building since 2004, through workshops, contribution to manuals, advice on ToR/review and on drafting regulation. The course builds on these existing SEA experiences and on the lessons learned.

Furhtermore, the course (in spanish):

  • gives an update of SEA developments and more in depth SEA training
  • aims to lead to improvement and better use of the SEA instrument
  • provides more attention for steps in the SEA procedure which are still less developed, like SEA review and SEA monitoring

The first group of participants has already finished the two months course in march and received their certificate. Universidad Loyola is planning to run this course again in the near future.
