In continuation of CEP support to strengthen Myanmar’s environmental safeguards system, a 2nd Stakeholder Consultation Workshop on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Procedures was held in Yangon on 6 January 2014.
The workshop included over 135 participants from the private and public sectors, nongovernment and civil society organizations, and national EIA consultants. Participants learned about the content and application of the draft procedures, which have been prepared by the Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry (MOECAF). Feedback given during the workshop will be reflected in finalizing the procedures, which are expected to soon come into effect.
CEP support to MOECAF and other sector ministries aims to establish a robust environmental safeguards framework and systems, comprising EIA procedures and technical guidelines, national environmental quality standards, and complemented by capacity building support.
