SEA Water Sector

The goal of this Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) is to conduct a systematic assessment of the environmental consequences of the New Water Sector Strategy, adopted by the Lebanese government in March 2012. The assessment will aim to ensure that the said consequences are fully included and addressed appropriately at the earliest possible stage of decision, making them on par with economic and social considerations.

More specifically, the objectives of this assignment are:

  • To provide recommendations for optimizing the strategy in order to fully integrate major environmental, social, and economic concerns;
  • To test and demonstrate opportunities for practical application of the SEA in Lebanon; and
  • To test and demonstrate the applicability of a methodological and procedural SEA approach outlined in the Lebanon SEA decree.
