THE BENEFITS OF USING STRATEGIC ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT IN DEVELOPMENT CO-OPERATION T he application of SEA in the context of development co-operation has a range of benefits – both improvements in process and improved development outcomes. Inevitably, process benefits are easier to identify and document, but this should not obscure the improved outcomes that result in ensuring environment is mainstreamed in strategic decisions.

Effective institutional development, in particular, should start from the premise of building on what already exists rather than transplanting entirely new systems. Good practices continue to evolve and need to be adapted to the circumstances of specific agencies and countries. Development agencies need to tailor their internal policies and procedures to be consistent with these requirements. 2. UNDERSTANDING STRATEGIC ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT T his Guidance uses the term SEA to describe analytical and participatory approaches that aim to integrate environmental considerations into policies, plans and programmes and evaluate the inter linkages with economic and social considerations.

It is important to note that SEA is not a substitute for EIA, SIA or CIA, but complements them. They are all integral parts of a comprehensive environmental assessment tool box. This has important implications in developing countries where EIA and SIA systems may still be in the process of being established. SEA application should not distract or complicate this process. Developing countries are frequently constrained by lack of resources to carry out project EIAs. SEA can, in fact, help to speed up EIA procedures and streamline their scope (and costs) by ensuring that project proposals are set within a policy framework that has already been subject to environmental scrutiny.
