The Embassy of Sweden in Hanoi participated in an interesting workshop gathering alumni of Sida’s international training programme on Strategic Environmental Assessment and other key stakeholders.
Financed by Sida, the programme has been carried out by Chalmers, University of Gothenburg and NIRAS. The networking event on 7 September was hosted by UNDP.
“We discussed about the SEA as a tool for planners and decision-makers, practices in different sectors, challenges, accomplishments and most importantly opportunities for enhancing effectiveness of SEA in Vietnam,” writes the embassy.
To date, the programme has trained more than 30 people who are in mid-management positions in Vietnamese ministries, government agencies, research institutes and universities.
Sida is the Swedish International Development Agency.
