Applying good EIA practice criteria to SEA: the Öresund Bridge as a case
Responsible organisation
2003 (English)Conference paper (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The paper is concerned with the evaluation of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and good EIA practice criteria. It also looks at the applicability of such criteria to Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA). This is done though a closer examination of three good practice criteria proposed by Westerlund: the basis for the decision criterion, the result criterion and the alternative criterion. A connection is made with the Swedish Öresund Bridge project and the criteria are problematized in light of this project. The discussion is also linked to the issue of rationality in strategic decision-making. The paper argues that seeing SEA as an EIA analogy is not purely straightforward.
