New procedure ESIA & SEA - Guinea

29 August 2022

Good news from Guinea: the Environment Ministry published a new procedure for Environmental Assessment, which provides an update on ESIA and adds SEA requirements. Guinea distinguishes between detailed ESIA for high-impact projects (category A) and simplified ESIA for projects with less impact (category B). The Agency for Environmental Assessment (AGEE) manages the procedure with a Comité Technique d’Analyse Environnementale (CTAE) – an ad hoc committee with representatives of ministries and NGOs.

The procedure itself is only available in French. For more information in English on ESIA and SEA in Guinea, please visit NCEA's country profile
