Seychelles’ first Environment Outlook to be validated in a workshop
The first ever Seychelles Environment Outlook – which is a State of Environment (SOE) report – will be presented and validated in a workshop that will take place on Thursday 8th August, 2013 at the Care House from 8.30 to 15.15 hrs.
The validation of the nation’s first SOE report will involve the participation of several key local stakeholders.
This report has been developed in line with international standards and commitments to international environment conventions, and sets the indicators for Seychelles to report progress against international conventions.
It will serve to enhance local and global environmental management. It provides baselines and a monitoring structure for the coordination and implementation of the Seychelles Sustainable Development Strategy (SSDS), as well as facilitating the generation of national reports to the various Multilateral Environment Agreements (MEAs).
The Environment Outlook builds upon the SSDS. Both have been developed through the UNDP-Global Environmental Facility funded project ‘Capacity Development for Improved National and International Environment Management in Seychelles’ (CB2). The CB2 project is being implemented by the Government of Seychelles (GOS) through the GOS-UNDP-GEF Programme Coordination Unit (PCU). The Project Manager is Annike Faure.
