This guideline will give direction on how SEA practice in Kenya will be conducted using best practice approaches as adopted both during the drafting and subsequent reviews. The guidelines focus on common approaches for SEA at national and sectoral levels.

Summary

The major purpose of these EIA Guidelines and Administrative procedures have been developed to assist in the integration of environmental concerns in economic development to foster sustainable development in Kenya. EIA identifies potential environmental impacts of proposed development activities as well as policies, plans and programmes of the Government, including those undertaken jointly with bi-lateral and multi-lateral institutions. In addition EIA identifies measures to mitigate the negative impacts, while maximizing on the positive ones. EIA is essentially a tool that facilitates informed decisions-making on sustainable development in Kenya.

Summary

One of the climate change effects in Kenya’s Tana Delta is increased flooding. The SEA for a land use plan on the area led to a distinction between low, floodprone areas and high, safer areas. Measures were taken according to this distinction, to increase the population’s safety and secure their livelihoods.
