Strategic Environmental Assessment. Introduction to SEA History of Development of Strategic Environmental Assessment History of environmental assessment in the western countries began inwith adoption of National Environmental Policy Act1 by Congress of the United States.

In85//EECFile Size: KB. The Practice of Strategic Environmental Assessment aims to provide a unique analysis of SEAs which have been undertaken, drawing on a variety of methods and circumstances to illustrate how best practice can be achieved, and providing inspiration for those considering studying, commission or carrying out an SEA.

Both the UK and Germany have ambitious plans for the expansion of wind energy generation in their territorial and marine jurisdictions. Associated plans and programmes are subject to the terms of the European Directive, /42/EC ‘on the assessment of the effects of certain plans and programmes on the environment’ (i.e.

the SEA Directive). Fig. 1 shows the current status Cited by: Integrating Strategic Environmental Assessment into Power Planning This book is the first in a three-volume series of studies arising from the project Ensuring Sustainability of the Greater Mekong Subregion Regional Power Development.

Environmental assessment (EA) is the assessment of the environmental consequences (positive negative) of a plan, policy, program, or actual projects prior to the decision to move forward with the proposed action. In this context, the term "environmental impact assessment" (EIA) is usually used when applied to actual projects by individuals or companies and the term "strategic.

Identifying Sustainability Indicators of Strategic Environmental Assessment for Power Planning This book is the second in a three-volume series of studies arising from the project Ensuring Sustainability of the Greater Mekong Subregion Regional Power Development.

The project aimed to assess the impacts of alternative. Overview. An environmental impact assessment (EIA) is an assessment of the possible impact (positive or negative) that a proposed project may have on the environment, considering natural, social and economic aspects.

The purpose of the assessment is to ensure that decision makers consider the ensuing environmental impacts to decide whether to proceed with the project.

The Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) works to understand and mitigate barriers to wind power deployment by conducting research and development activities aimed at addressing siting and environmental issues.

When properly sited, wind projects provide a net environmental benefit to the communities in which they operate and to the nation overall.

A number of key messages have emerged from the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of hydropower in Viet Nam. These are: • SEA provides a powerful tool for the analysis of the social and environmental impacts of hydropower development and can be fully integrated into the overall strategic planning.
