Awareness-raising webinar on the role of strategic environmental assessment in Ukraine’s post-war recovery

An awareness-raising webinar on the role of strategic environmental assessment in Ukraine’s post-war recovery took place on 11 April 2024.

The meeting objectives were to:

  • discuss the potential of the strategic environmental assessment for mainstreaming and incorporating green considerations into the post-war recovery process;
  • share and discuss most recent experience and developments in SEA application in Ukraine, in particular those related to the Unified SEA register;
  • learn about and discuss the key aspects of the SEA in relation to spatial planning documentation in the context of the recovery of territories.


The webinar was open to a broad spectrum of stakeholders ranging from representatives of relevant environmental, health, urban planning and architecture departments of the regional and Kyiv city state administrations, to representatives of local self-government bodies, and to NGOs and other interested stakeholders from all regions of Ukraine.


Within the framework of the European Union-funded EU4Environment programme, UNECE is assisting the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries, including Ukraine, in comprehensive capacity-building and institutional building on Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and transboundary Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and in finalizing legal reforms in this area.

The objective of the SEA is to promote sustainable development of territories/areas by providing for a high level of protection of the environment, including health of the population, and integration of environmental considerations into the development and adoption of state planning documents.
