This publication provides practical guidance for performing strategic environmental assessments (SEAs) for nuclear power programmes.
It incorporates the latest knowledge and draws on best practices in conducting SEAs. Based on inputs from SEA experts from
across the world, it lays down an effective SEA process that contributes to: strengthening decision making for nuclear power
programmes; achieving environmentally sound and sustainable development; and improving good governance and building public
trust and confidence in decision-making. Importantly, SEA for nuclear power programmes can ensure effective communication
with the public and other stakeholders. Consequently, significant emphasis is placed on stakeholder engagement and public
participation. Further, appropriate tools for assessment and quality review are presented for all stages of the SEA process.
