Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA)
SEA is a systematic process for evaluating the environmental consequences of policies, plans and programmes, to ensure that environmental issues are addressed on a par with economic and social considerations before adoption.
Ultimately, this aids in achieving the goal of an implementable plan with the minimum negative and maximum positive environmental impact.
