Apply SEA to planning processes to achieve objectives Masterplan Manila Bay

30 August 2019

The city of Manila is growing fast, and faces major challenges in environmental management. The Philippine Government is collaborating with the Dutch to develop a sustainable development masterplan for the Manila Bay. The NCEA has been advising the lead planning agency for this process on the possible application of SEA. In our most recent advice, we reflect on a new Master Plan report, and several institutional changes that had taken place. We recommend to apply SEA to the different planning processes that are needed to achieve the objectives of the Master Plan, such as the planning of relocation, reclamation and sanitation.
