Workshop on SEA and Green Economy

A workshop on SEA and Green Economy, was organised by the OECD DAC ENVIRONMET’s Task Team on Strategic Environmental Assessment in Lusaka, Zambia, on 17-18 January 2013, as a collaborative venture with the Zambian Ministry of Lands, Natural Resources and Environmental Protection, the Zambia Environmental Protection Agency (ZEMA), the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE).

The workshop was held back-to-back with a workshop on Green Growth organised by the OECD and the African Development Bank, together with the same Zambian institutions.

The SEA and Green Economy workshop addressed a number of themes including: the nature of a green economy; how SEA can most effectively support efforts towards transitioning to a green economy; and what kind of SEA approach (complex, simple, tailored, etc.) might be most helpful or appropriate to particular opportunities and situations. The workshop agenda is provided in Appendix 1.

Agendas and presentations made at the two workshops are now available at:
