Date published: 25 August 2021

DAERA's equality scheme sets out how it will comply with it's equality duties under section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998.

## Details

The scheme sets out the actions the Department will take to meet its equality duties and to ensure that equality is central to our policy and decision-making processes.

By screening new and revised policies at an early stage, DAERA can identify those policies that are most likely to impact significantly on different groups of people, and to carry out Equality Impact Assessments (EQIAs).
