The SEA of the draft OP of HUSRB IPA II CBC Programme

The SEA of the Hungary–Serbian Cross-border Cooperation Programme (2014-2020) is planned and carried out in line with the 2001/42/EC Directive and its respective national adaptations:

  • the Hungarian Government Decree 2/2005 (I.11.)
  • Serbia at present ("Sl. glasnik RS", br. 135/2004 i 88/2010) Law on strategic environmental assessment of plans and programmes

After examining advantages and disadvantages, the Task Force and the relevant authorities decided to carry out SEA process jointly. This means that a joint Environmental Report is elaborated in the framework of one joint process and the consultation processes are carried out separately in both countries based on common rules. The scope of the SEA was approved by environmental authorities in Hungary (where MA is located) as legal start of the SEA process. It consists of all required information based on legislation.

SEA is a useful tool to highlight potential positive environmental impacts of a program and hinder measures that might be harmful for the environment. The SEA is carried out simultaneously to the preparation of the programme and consultation about the Programme has already started as well.
In order to ensure a transparent decision-making, for the public and for relevant environmental authorities possibility of consultations is to be provided.
After publishing SEA documents there will be 30 days to send comments from environmental and sustainable point of view related to the Programme Document and SEA Report in frame of consultation process (until 29th of August 2014): husrb.exante@icg-exante.hu
