Static nested scope

<programming> Where the scope of an identifier is fixed at compile-time to be the smallest block (begin/end, function, or procedure body) containing the identifier's declaration.

This means that an identifier declared in some block is only accessible within that block and from procedures declared within it.

This term is used in the Python community.
