At a time while a brand new eu directive calls for the implementation of strategic environmental evaluation (SEA) into all appropriate decision-making techniques, this well timed e-book could be required analyzing for environmental policymakers in all european member states. it is going to even be a invaluable resource of knowledge and reference for researchers, teachers and experts within the fields of making plans, environmental evaluate and environmental administration.

Recent experiences in Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA), have revealed an increasing complexity and variation in the characteristics of the decision-making processes, compared to applications of project-level EIA.
