Updated Sourcebook- Integration of Natural Hazards into the EIA Process

This document is an update of the Sourcebook on the Integration of Natural Hazards into the Environmental Impact Assessment Process, hereinafter referred to as the Sourcebook (2004). The Sourcebook (2004) was developed as a collaborative effort between the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) through its Disaster Mitigation Facility for the Caribbean (DMFC) and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Adapting to Climate Change in the Caribbean (ACCC) Project and published in 2004 by the Caribbean Development Bank. The expected outcome of the update is improved capacity within Borrowing Member Countries (BMCs) to assess and manage risks associated with natural hazards and climate variability and change in their project appraisal and supervision processes.
