DR BILL SHEATE WILL BE SPEAKING AT A EUROPEAN COMMISSION WORKSHOP IN BRUSSELS ON 18 May 2016 ON THE STRATEGIC ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT DIRECTIVE
Dr Bill Sheate, Technical Director at CEP, is an invited speaker at a workshop organised by the European Commission in Brussels on 18 May on “The application and effectiveness of the SEA Directive (Directive 2001/42/EC)".
Bill will be talking on “How Strategic is Strategic Environmental Assessment? The importance of ‘tiering’ with EIA”, looking at how the relationship between SEA and EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) has evolved in the EU, and how a better appreciation of this 'tiering' between different decision and assessment levels can help to make environmental assessment more efficient and effective. Bill has undertaken a number of studies on EIA and SEA for the European Commission over the years, and has been involved with the EIA and SEA Directives since their early conception from the early 1980s.
