Title Applying Strategic Environmental Assessment: Good Practice Guidance for Development Co-operation
Type of Information Guideline
Description The “Good Practice Guidance on Applying SEA in Development Co-operation” provides recommendations and a framework for the application of SEA to development co-operation based on emerging good practice. It is the product of two years work by an SEA Task Team of the OECD DAC ENVIRONET. The Task Team comprised development professionals working on the practical application of SEA in both developed and developing countries and co-opted experts from other relevant areas. It has developed a consensus on the concepts, principles and processes underpinning the successful application of SEA in a situation where great diversity prevails. 
This Guidance is aimed primarily at professionals working in development agencies and developing country governments directly involved in policy, plan and programme development, assessment and implementation but it will also be of value to other policy analysts and planners. A discussion of the principles and concepts, benefits and contexts of SEA leads the reader into more practical support in the application of SEA in practice. Chapter 5 in particular identifies 12 key potential entry points for SEA application and provides more detailed support in realising these opportunities. Good practice case studies are used to support the general discussion wherever available.
