Publication: Support to Carrying Out Pilot Strategic Environmental Assessment of Socio-economic Development Master Plan in Red River Delta Area to 2020
This report presents lessons from a pilot project that supported undertaking of strategic environmental assessment (SEA) of the Socio- Economic Development Master Plan for Red River Delta (hereafter RRD SEDMP). This SEA has been conducted by a internal working group which operated within the Development Strategy Institute (DSI) which is a planning arm of the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. The SEA tested an assessment methodology recommended in the draft MPI Guidelines for SEA of Socio-Economic Development Strategies, Master Plans and Plans. The entire SEA process was facilitated by the World Bank and was supported by one International Consultant and two Local Consultants (see chapter 1 for details). The report summarizes the key strengths and weaknesses of this pilot SEA. The pilot SEA has generated several lessons regarding SEA methodology and process management in specific conditions of Vietnam.
