Environmentally and socially sustainable policies are essential for
good governance. Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) is the key
tool for integrating environmental considerations into policies,
programs and plans. This book focuses on SEA applied to policies.
Through lessons learned from previous use of SEA on policies, it draws
lessons on the strengths and weaknesses of current SEA methodology. It
then goes on to analyze how policies are formulated and implemented and
proposes a new conceptual framework for conducting SEA of policies
thatpotentially could be more useful in influencing decision makers to
integrate environmental sustainability considerations into policy
formulation and implementation.
