In addition, you will also read how the NCEA operated as an organisation. In 2014 this was influenced by a changing Dutch context in which government authorities now have to pay a fee for our advice. Also, in 2014 the contours of the new Environment and Planning Act became clear and how these will influence Dutch environmental assessment practice. Outside the Netherlands we were happy to see an expansion of our support to environmental assessment for Dutch investments in developing countries under the government’s private sector development funds.
We would highly appreciate to receive any questions or comments you might have on this annual report and are looking forward to receive these either through firstname.lastname@example.org or by giving us a call on + 31 30 234 7660.
