In the course of compiling and implementing the operational programmes of the New Hungary Development Plan (NHDP) for the 2007-2013-period, it is necessary to ensure the consistent validation of basic principles stipulated within the framework of horizontal policies.

Taking account of environmental criteria in the course of planning is a national, as well as EU expectation, since environmental sustainability is equally a part of the sustainability dimension, as a basic element of horizontal policies.

In order to validate the primary objective of sustainability and environmental criteria, the National Development Agency (NDA) carried out the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of the operational programmes of NHDP, as stipulated within the framework of Government Decree No. 2/2005 (I.11.) on the environmental assessment of specific plans and programmes.
