Synopsis:
A comprehensive survey of Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA), this handbook brings together a range of international perspectives on the subject’s theoretical, methodological and institutional dimensions. This conventional wisdom receives critical reappraisal covering lessons learned from experience and offering new ideas and interpretations for the future of SEA. Part I comprises a review of SEA frameworks in leading countries (Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the US), the European Union and developing regions (Africa, Asia, Latin America and Newly Independent States). Part 2 reviews SEA practice in several major sectors (energy, minerals, transport, water, development assistance and coastal zone management). Part 3 addresses the linkages between SEA and other comparable tools such as spatial planning and environmental management. Part 4 probes key cross-cutting issues in SEA, including how to address cumulative and transboundary effects. Part 5 identifies ways and means of SEA process and capacity development, focusing on how to improve and upgrade the theory and practice of the field. Part 6 examines the shift from conventional SEA towards more integrative approaches, drawing on experience and examples from a number of countries. [As provided bySyndetic Solutions]
