What is EIA?
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)
provides the information needed to allow full consideration of environmental interests likely to have significant environmental impact. The EIA report shows how proposals will affect the environment and whether other alternatives would achieve the goals in a more sustainable way.
Strategic Environmental Assessment
Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) focuses on consideration of environmental consequences in plans and programmes, with specific emphasis on environment in the strategic phase.
The Netherlands Commission for Environmental Assessment
The Netherlands Commission for Environmental Assessment (NCEA) prepares mandatory and voluntary advisory reports for government (national, provincial and local) on the scope and quality of environmental assesments (EA).
