  7. SEA Toolkit: Sectors • Sectors are based on the World Bank’s sector structure • Provides SEA materials (i.e., handbooks, manuals and guidelines, SEA reports, summaries and TORs from the World Bank and other organizations) by sector

  9. SEA Toolkit: Other Information • SEA workshops • Presentations and hands-on exercises from the SEA workshops held at the World Bank • Bank SEA publication • Publication that discusses SEA (i.e., not SEA reports) • A link to the World Bank’s East Asia and the Pacific region’s SEA web site • SEA external links • Links to IAIA, UN agencies’ SEA related web sites, among others
