Strategic Environmental
Assessment (SEA)on Food Security
Ridzwan Abdul Rahman, PhD
Study Team Leader, TWG (SEA) on
Food Serurity in Sabah
Background
• Food security in the State of Sabah as
suggested in the Sabah Development Corridor
(SDC) Blueprint 2008-2025.
• Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) on
the environmental and social impacts of the
policies, strategies and programmes for food
security in the State.
Objective
• To provide an indication of the long-term
environmental and social impacts (up to 2025),
both positive and negative, that may result from
the strategies and programmes directly and
indirectly directed to improving food security in
the State of Sabah
• To highlight the need for any future assessments
or special studies in specific areas as well as
possible alternative or new programmes to
enhance food security in the long-term.
Output
• A baseline report on impacts from the
programmes in the SDC and those
suggested for food self-sufficiency
• This baseline can be reviewed and
updated at any time as new information
or policies become available.
Food Security Strategies (SDC)
1. Enhance quality and productivity for foodbased agriculture.
2. Ensure Sabah can become self-sufficient in
the production of the basic food
requirements of the State.
Food Security Programmes (SDC)
1. Agri-Excel outreach programme
2. Agri-Business acceleration programme
(particularly for aquaculture, fisheries and
livestock)
3. Modernised collection, packaging and
distribution centres

Definition
• The boundary: The political boundary of the
State of Sabah, and the EEZ waters of the
State.
• All matter affected outside this boundary, but
affecting the SEA will be considered as
External Factors .
Screening
• The Screening step removes unnecessary
strategies and programmes (of SDC)
from consideration by the SEA.
Scenarios
• demand for basic foods and the levels of
production needed
• land availability, including alternative uses,
infrastructure and marketing support
• assessment of specified production areas (eg.
paddy in Kota Belud) to determine their value
as models/demonstrations for other food
areas.
Scoping
• Covers the selection of environmental
components, and is the step that will
determine the actual environmental
issues that the SEA will examine.
Environmental Issues Examined
Food Basket
• Commodities for self-sufficiency:
– Paddy production
– Meat (Beef/Lamb/Mutton/Poultry/Pork/etc)
– Fish (finfish/prawn/shellfish/etc.)
– Vegetables ,and
– Fruits.
Public Participation
• all stakeholders have a chance to provide
input into the process, and their inputs should
be used to improve scoping and mitigation in
particular.
• Consultation
• Fieldwork: direct surveys, questionnaires,
group or community meetings
External Factor
• To consider whether there are any external
factors that may affect the SEA
– factors that will impact on the bounded
SEA or on external areas from the bounded
SEA.
• To consider activities outside of the local area
defined by the specific scenario.
• To consider the impacts on and from other
development sectors.
Data Collection
• Heavy reliant on secondary data
• Cooperation from the Departments of
Agriculture, Fisheries, Livestock and Vet. Services,
and many others.
• Some primary data collected as part of fieldwork,
including data relevant to the interests of
stakeholders.
• To ensure that unnecessary data is not collected
(a waste of assessment resources) most of the
data collection will take place after scoping.
Analysis
Uses the Rapid Impact Assessment Matrix (RIAM) f
The advantages of RIAM :
• Provides a transparent record of the judgement
system
• Provides a clear, permanent record
• Allows rapid comparison of development options &
‘what if’ conditions
• Provides an evaluation platform for all sectors
• Organises the analysis process of an assessment
