The Iraqi Ministry for Health and Environment and the NCEA are exploring options to work together in ESIA and SEA.

Significant details

As part of this exploration, the NCEA contributed to two workshops that took place in Beirut and Amman in 2018. These workshops were part of the Norwegian Oil for Development co-operation programme, and aimed to build capacity to review ESIAs in the oil and gas sector in Iraq. The NCEA worked with the Norwegian Environmental Agency to develop and deliver the workshop content. Participants came from both the Iraqi Ministry for Health and Environment and the Ministry of Oil.
