An SEA of the North-South Economic Corridor Strategy and Action Plan (2008 to 2009)

The North-South Economic Corridor (NSEC) – linking Kunming to Bangkok, Kunming to Hanoi, and Hanoi to Nanning – is one of the flagship investments under the GMS Economic Cooperation Program.

With economic development rapidly increasing along this economic corridor, understanding how this will impact the natural environment and local communities is essential to enable decision makers to take steps to mitigate negative impacts.

Towards this, a strategic environmental assessment (SEA) was conducted on NSEC with a focus on transport in the GMS Strategy and Action Plan (SAP), which serves as the top-level umbrella planning framework for this corridor. The SEA was also linked into the Transport Sector Strategy and Action Plan coordinated by the GMS Transport Sector Forum; and relevant national plans within the corridor, such as transport, trade and tourism development.
