What is an SEA?
A Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) is a systematic, comprehensive and iterative process for assessing the environmental effects, both negative and positive, of a proposed policy, plan or program and its alternatives. The focus should be on identifying strategic considerations at a general or conceptual level. The SEA differs from a Project Environmental Assessment (PEA), which focusses on evaluating quantitative, detailed environmental effects of a particular project.
