    Sammanfattning : Strategic environmental assessment (SEA) has the potential to improve strategic planning. However, meeting this expectation is a major challenge since SEA practice still constraints itself to assess the impacts of strategic planning initiatives. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Fostering Participation and Dialogue Using Strategic Environmental Assessment

    Författare :Juan Azcarate; Berit Balfors; Linda Soneryd; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; deliberative democracy; collaborative communictive planning; strategic environmental assessment; participation; networks; decision making;

    Sammanfattning : Various international conventions and several theories and approaches from the planning and environment fields of study have focused on enhancing the public’s access to information and its participation in strategic decision making. However, it seems that it is challenging to encourage a meaningful public participation in decision making processes, since it is difficult to engage civil society in strategic discussions, it is complex to institutionalise participative processes, and it is demanding to include traditionally marginalised groups in current debates on development.
