Chapter 24: Strategic environmental assessment in Chile: an unfulfilled strategic promise

Rodrigo Jiliberto H


The Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) model applied in Chile, due to its strategic character, is an international rarity and therefore deserves attention, particularly for those who believe that SEA should have a strategic orientation. This chapter reviews the first 9 years of application of SEA in Chile. To date, application has been associated with a distortion of the strategic nature initially granted by the Law that enforced SEA in the country. This has had consequences not only administratively, but also substantively, as it has tended to encourage a formalization of the evaluation process and its departure from final decisions.
