The strategic environmental assessment (SEA) of land use plans, in the words of the editors (of the U. of Manchester and Sheffield Hallam U., UK), "is intended to help predict potential environmental impact that could occur as a result of their implementation, as part of the wider promotion of the planning system as a tool to help deliver sustainable development."

Overview

The strategic environmental assessment (SEA) of land use plans, in the words of the editors (of the U. of Manchester and Sheffield Hallam U., UK), "is intended to help predict potential environmental impact that could occur as a result of their implementation, as part of the wider promotion of the planning system as a tool to help deliver sustainable development." After an introduction to SEA and a discussion of how to evaluate the quality and effectiveness of SEA in land use planning, they present evaluations of the SEA of land use plans in Canada, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, South Africa, Sweden, the UK, the UK, and the World Bank. Each chapter explores the context in the particular jurisdiction and provides a case study in which the SEA system, the SEA process, and the SEA outcome are analyzed. The final chapter follows a similar structure in drawing comparative conclusions. Distributed in the US by Stylus. Annotation © 2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
