Within the GIZ land management project, AMBERO/ICON has elaborated a Guide for Strategic Environmental Assessment in urban development planning. The guide is a result of intense cooperation between planners and environmental experts from the Ministry of Traffic, Construction and Infrastructure, the Ministry of Agriculture and Environmental Protection, the University of Belgrade, local self governments and experts from abroad and is based on experiences made in various urban planning projects in Serbia and in Germany.
With the guide the project wants to contribute to a better understanding and, finally, to improve the quality of SEA and urban plans providing technical information about the procedure, content and methods to be applied in the SEA process. The guide focuses on the integration of SEA in urban plans. It mainly targets planners and local self governments and intends to support them in the formulation of urban plans in the most environmentally sensitive manner.
The guide can be downloaded from our homepage in Serbian language (click here). An English version will be available soon.
