“Strategic Environmental Assessment in Development Practice: Review of Recent Experience” showcases on-ground experience of applying Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) in developing country context. It presents key findings from applications of SEA in nice countries:  Vietnam, Bhutan, Namibia, Mauritius, Benin, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Honduras, and Montenegro. Based on these case studies, the report suggests six recommendations to improve SEA practice in developing countries.

SEA is known as a key policy instrument to mainstream environmental and social considerations into various policy-making processes. It is a set of analysis and consultation to identify potential environmental and social impacts of policies, plans and programmes being considered. By revealing such potential impacts, SEA prevents irreversible decisions with unexpected outcomes.
