Publication on SEA effectiveness in China and the Netherlands
In the past three years there has been an ongoing exchange on SEA between China and the Netherlands. One of the products of this co-operation was presented in Beijing on the 4th of December: a joint publication on SEA effectiveness in both countries. The book documents the Chinese experience with SEA for mega region planning, and lessons learnt from 25 years of SEA research and practice in the Netherlands. The publication was presented by Mr Siebe Riedstra (Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment) and Mr Cheng Lifeng (Ministry of Environmental Protection of China). Various contributors to the book, including from the Chinese Appraisal Centre for Environmental Engineering, and the NCEA, were there to celebrate the occasion.
