This capstone project considered the priorities that need to be given to the implementation of the Law Nr.03/L-230 on the Strategic Environmental Assessment, 2010 (Law on SEA). This is one of the basic horizontal environmental policy tools applicable for a wide range of issues such as climate change, water, air protection and biodiversity. Currently, Kosovo is fullfilling the European Union requirement for the transposition of the Directive 2001/42/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, of 27 June 2001 into national legislation. It assesses the effects of certain plans and programs on the environment. Implentation of the newly adopted Law on SEA is now the main challenge. This capstone project presents the most suitable model of screening procedure based on the SEA best practices. The model guideline is aimed at guiding the plan and program responsible authorities at the local and central levels.
