Strategic Environmental Assessments for Power Sector Planning in the GMS

This publication shows how strategic environmental assessments can help the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) countries create sustainable national power development plans.

It outlines the key characteristics of strategic environmental assessments (SEAs), discusses global trends in energy technologies and markets, and identifies priority steps for further mainstreaming SEAs in power sector planning in the six GMS countries. In Viet Nam, for instance, SEAs have been integrated into the power development planning process with support from the Asian Development Bank.
