Chapter Summary

The development of a protocol for transboundary Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) to the Tehran Convention ('the draft Protocol') was initiated in 2004 and was built on the earlier effort made in the development of the Guidelines on EIA in a Transboundary Context in the Caspian Sea Region. The development of a legally binding procedure for the implementation of transboundary EIA is still at an early stage and on-going efforts are being made. This chapter discusses the theoretical framework of the above mentioned Guidelines and the draft Protocol for transboundary EIA. It introduces a key features of the draft protocol and highlights the challenges in developing a harmonised transboundary EIA procedure in Caspian Sea region. The chapter also illustrates the past attempts to implement transboundary EIA made in Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan and some of the local realities identified through national capacity building.
