Analytical Strategic Environmental overview (ANSEA) is an insightful new method of environmental overview, in keeping with determination idea, coverage research and environmental concerns. those suggestions, although now not new of their personal fields of program, are mixed and built-in in an leading edge type. This publication provides fresh examine at the implementation of the ANSEA technique which goals to make sure environmental values are effectively built-in into the decision-making procedure. ANSEA used to be constructed to give a contribution to the systematic integration of environmental defense targets in strategic decision-making which, in flip, will give a contribution to the advertising of sustainable improvement. the tactic could be utilized to examine how environmental and sustainability matters are addressed in decision-making approaches at either the nationwide and native point for a number of diversified regulations. Importantly, the focal point is on comparing the decision-making technique itself, instead of the quantitative output of an review. With explicatory examples and functional case reports, the prestigious, interdisciplinary authors in actual fact illustrate how a decision-centred method of environmental evaluation might be effectively accomplished. At a time while a brand new ecu directive calls for the implementation of strategic environmental evaluation (SEA) into all appropriate decision-making approaches, this well timed booklet may be required examining for environmental policymakers in all european member states. it's going to even be a useful resource of data and reference for researchers, teachers and specialists within the fields of making plans, environmental evaluate and environmental administration.

Sample text

Theories of decision making do not belong to a single academic discipline; contributions have come from philosophy, economics, political theory, sociology and psychology (Dunn 1994; Keeney and Raiffa 1993; Sexton et al. 1999). There is no clear and distinct set of criteria that defines this theory. Nonetheless, two main theoretical streams of decision making can be identified. The first is the structural theories, which focus on the structure of the society. The second is the behavioural theories, focusing on the assumed behaviour of the decision maker in an organizational context (Weston 2000).

1 Changing perspectives in approaching EA From An EA centred on the impact of a decision (output oriented) to An EA centred on the quality of the decision-making process (process oriented) From An EA oriented to the description of the output of decisions to An EA oriented to the description of the decision process From A relationship between decision and a one-time EA which is not necessarily symbiotic to A relationship between decision and a multi-scale iterative EA which is necessarily symbiotic In this approach, the likely environmental consequences of decisions are only one type of information that needs to enter the decision-making process (DMP) at the appropriate moment; however, they are not the only relevant information.

A theoretical approach is worthwhile and useful, but it requires a timeframe which surpasses a project timeframe. On the other hand, there are enough empirical facts and experiences accumulated on SEA to allow setting a new ground for SEA on a historically pragmatic basis. There are three facts that support the development of a new ground for SEA. ● ● ● First, the short history of SEA has demonstrated the difficulty of assessing the environmental impacts, effects and consequences of complex strategic decisions like PPP.
