Abstract

The book introduces the legal context of the SEA Directive and the challenges and problems of its implementation into national law. Specific EU member states like Sweden, Czech Republic and Latvia and their current status and national strategies for the implementation of SEA are presented. Besides valuable experiences from North America and Oceania the need for SEA in some developing countries is discussed. A special emphasis is put on methodologies for SEA and public participation. Further the relation between SEA and environmental media, biodiversity and health as-well-as the implementation of SEA in spatial and sector planning are highlighted. Several case studies are integrated within the chapters.
