Strategic environmental assessment

The strategic environmental assessment is a systematic process that involves analyzing the scope and nature of the likely environmental impacts of plans, policies or programs, the need for optimizing positive and minimizing or mitigating negative environmental impacts, and the likely magnitude of any adverse environmental impacts remaining after mitigation measures.

In accordance with the Cabinet Directive on the Environmental Assessment of Policy, Plan and Program Proposals, the Agency draws up a public statement concerning environmental impact after a strategic environmental assessment has been conducted.
