13. Scoping and early consultation

Identifying relevant objectives, indicators and (where appropriate) targets, describing the baseline environment, describing links to other plans and programmes, and identifying problems can be seen as the first half of the SEA. It can be carried out without knowing much about the strategic action, before the strategic action has been developed in any detail yet.

Typically, these findings would be brought together in a draft SEA report, or a 'scoping report'. In the EC and UNECE systems, the draft SEA report would typically be sent to statutory consultees - government agencies responsible for the environment - for comment.
