What is Strategic Environmental Assessment?

The EAE seeks to promote and accompany, from its first steps, the incorporation of environmental considerations in Public Policies and Plans with a view to promoting sustainable planning in the country.

In this sense, this tool allows to improve, for example, the environmental approach of the Instruments of Territorial Management, resulting in a more efficient land use and allowing to know, at an early stage, the existing territorial limitations that must be considered in order to obtain adequate planning (Ministerio de Medio Ambiente de Chile, 2020).
