In Section 7, Dennis Victor evaluates the “Strategic environmental assessment as a policy framework for sustainable development in Asia.” Dr. Victor provides an overview of the trends of Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) in Asia and explores it as a potential tool for sustainable development. Victor finds that SEA integration for sustainable development in Asia may require a paradigm shift from the current reliance on structured instruments such as legislation to unstructured instruments such as behavior based stakeholder and public engagements. SEA trends in Asia indicate that effective implementation of SEA as a tool for sustainable development requires an adaptable application of both structured and unstructured SEA instruments.
