Abstract

European Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) implementation still presents a number of criticalities, which are often attributed to historical delays leading to less diffuse practices than those in other countries (Tetlow and Hanusch, 2012 and Bina, 2007). Since the Directive 2001/42/EC (henceforth, Directive) has introduced the SEA (European Parliament and Council, 2001), the European Union Member States have acknowledged its principles through proper legislative acts (see Table 9 in Annex 2 for a selection of cases). The timing of these juridical processes spans over some years: for instance, Bulgaria, France, and the UK released a SEA law in 2004, while Italy in 2006 (Italian Regulation, 2006).
Our approach consists in considering a number of European national SEA guidelines and evaluates their principles, contents, and completeness. The work presented in this article is useful for the design and update of guidelines concerning SEA implementation to any type of programme and plan. The argument unfolds as follows. In the next section, we introduce a state of the art summary on critical issues in SEA implementation and SEA guidelines. In the third section, we define our method. In the fourth section, we describe a selection of SEA guidelines, present and discuss the results of our analysis, and propose a framework for the design of SEA guidelines in a given member state. The fifth section concludes this paper and provides some final outlook remarks.
