The Initiation phase relates to the overall SEACAP principles and covers the strategic issues of political commitment, mobilization of all municipal departments involved, and stakeholders' engagement. The SEACAP requires a formal approval by the municipal council (or equivalent body). Adequate human resources shall be in place to prepare and implement the SEACAP, since it is a challenging and time-consuming process. It requires well-planned and continuous collaboration and coordination among local and higher authorities and administrative departments (i.e. environmental protection, land use and urban planning, economics and social affairs, buildings, mobility and transport, budget and finance). The SEACAP process should be integrated in the everyday work of each department.
