The pillars of the SIA

The SIA consists of two equally important and complementary components:

  • a robust analysis of the potential economic, social, human rights and environmental impact (both negative and positive) that Angola's accession to the EU-SADC EPA could have in Angola or the EU (including the EU's outermost regions) - this section provides more details on these analysis; and
  • a continuous and wide-ranging consultation process to ensure a high degree of transparency and the engagement of all relevant stakeholders in the conduct of the SIA.
