Environmental Assessment

Environmental assessment is the process that seeks to predict, analyse and interpret the likely environmental impacts or implications of a proposed plan, programme or project.

Essentially one can distinguish between two levels of environmental assessment:

1. Assessment at plan or programme level;

2. Assessment of individual development projects

Being above-project level, plans and programmes are primarily assessed using the strategic environmental assessment process whereas a lower-level, more project-targeted assessment is used at the project stage as an integral part of the development consent process.

MEPA is the competent authority responsible for the environmental assessment of projects, whilst the SEA Focal Point within MSDEC is the competent authority responsible for Strategic Environmental Assessment on plans and programmes.
