Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) is the environmental assessment of policies, plans and programmes. It came in practice as an improvement over the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) to assist in sound environmental decision-making. It integrates the socioeconomic values with the environmentally viable development for better decision making. The scope of SEA is pluralistic, diversified, multidisciplinary and inter-sectorial.

This paper describes the concept of SEA; the evolution of SEA; the relation between SEA and ElA; SEA and sustainability criteria; the benefits of SEA; and the general methodology to perform SEA, which can be adopted for the highway infrastructure projects for sustainable development.
