Analysing Strategic Environmental Assessment

Towards Better Decision-Making

The Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei series on Economics, the Environment and Sustainable Development

Edited by Pietro Caratti, Holger Dalkmann and Rodrigo Jiliberto

Analytical Strategic Environmental Assessment (ANSEA) is an insightful new approach to environmental evaluation, based on decision theory, policy analysis and environmental considerations. These concepts, though not new in their own fields of application, are combined and integrated in an innovative fashion. This book presents recent research on the implementation of the ANSEA approach which aims to ensure environmental values are properly integrated into the decision-making process.
