The theoretical foundations were developed in the earlier chapters. During the research project a seven step framework was established for proceeding with the application of an ANSEA assessment. For each of the steps, different tools were developed in order to provide some guidance. It must be stated that this part presents only a conceptual idea for further scientific and practical discussion, because the development is based on desk research and there has been no actual testing of the concept yet. The role of the steps should be reviewed in practice, and the ANSEA approach will need to show its capacity in a real decision-making process. In addition, the tools have to be established and further developed. Firstly , there is a presentation of the general background with a description of the main elements of an ANSEA approach. An overview of the seven assessment steps is given; both the assessment modes (integrated and ex post) will be described and the role of the assessor will be discussed. In the subsequent sections, the seven steps will be described in detail. In every step different tools will be presented to support the analysis. During the description of the steps, examples will be given for some of the tools. These are taken from three of the case studies carried out in the ANSEA project. 5.2...
