Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) can be considered as the application of some EIA principles and environmental considerations in strategic decision making at policy, plan or programme (PPP) level. Some of the main objectives of EIA are to ensure that the possible impacts and effects of a project on environment, natural resources and society are examined and assessed as early as possible in the planning process, on equal terms with technical and economical considerations, and before the decision about implementing the project is being made. The objective of SEA is very much in correspondence with this, only that it applies to decisions taken at a more overarching PPP level.
