Component 1

Component 1 - Integrating environmental issues into strategic planning

Component 1 focuses on three main issues:

  1. Capacity building in Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) methodology including possible use of river basin modelling to support SEA;
  2. Development of environmental action plans at national and provincial levels; and
  3. Development of SEA decree and guideline as well as implementation of SEA into government policies, plans and programs.

Purpose of Component 1

The purpose of this component is that:

“Environmental aspects are merged into national strategic plans and that MONRE’s role in this is recognized by Ministry of Planning and Investment and other concerned line ministries”.

The specific indicator for the component purpose is that MONRE is actively involved in integrating environmental interests into the socio-economic planning system and into strategic plans of line ministries and their revisions (e.g. number and quality of MONRE interventions in SEA and planning processes in other ministries and/or large project).

Also the relevance of the Environmental indicators in the latest NSEDP and its revisions will be evaluated.


The approach in this component is to strengthen the sector specific expertise in MONRE so that it can contribute valuable inputs to the planning processes of other ministries. In order to support ownership of SEA within concerned line ministries, a newly created working group with representatives from all the line ministries will act as the basis for development of the legal basis, development of guidelines, and for training and implementation of SEA in the daily work. The SEA activities will concentrate on recently developed plans and programs and their midterm updates. Gradually, the activities will move on to address plans, which are under preparation and for which SEA could provide valuable contributions.

In accordance with these expected future roles and responsibilities, EMSP will train relevant MONRE and line ministry departments in the SEA procedures and techniques. This will include training of trainers to support continuous training in SEA in the future.


  1. GOL capacity in SEA methodology is developed and utilized by MONRE, MPI and line ministries;
  2. The Environmental Strategy updated and Environmental Action Plans prepared and implemented in a participatory manner;
  3. SEA is applied to the socio-economic plan, urban planning and sector planning on the national level according to agreed procedures.
