Developing Sea Guidance

The increase in strategic environmental assessment (SEA) application around

the world has been accompanied by a proliferation of guidance material.

Typically, when SEA is introduced, be it at international, regional, national or

district level, some sort of manual or practical advice document on how to

undertake SEA will follow. In addition to documents that deal with the SEA

process generally, there is also an array of guidance that addresses SEA for a

specific level of planning, such as the policy level, for a particular sector, such as

transport, or for a certain topic, such as health or climate change.
