The global and regional policy context

The international community has recognised the importance of assessing impacts that a range of activities can have on the environment, in order to mitigate these impacts as far as possible. This recognition has increased over time both in scope and depth through the number of references to EIAs and SEAs in different international instruments such as treaties, and decisions by governing bodies of international agreements. In this chapter, key developments at the global and regional level are presented, including the role that financial institutions have played in the development of national EIA and SEA legislation.
