Document Summary:

As the impacts of climate change begin to manifest globally environmental impact assessments (EIAs) will be crucial in tallying the exact environmental and financial costs of these impacts. Coupled with this will be the need to incorporate EIAs into national adaptation strategies so as to guide policy makers as to scale and scope of the measures that must be implemented.

These guidelines have been developed to assist CARICOM and SPREP country leaders with the integration of climate change adaptation considerations into the environmental impact assessment (EIA) process, thereby ensuring the selection and implementation of feasible options for development projects.
