The purpose of this document is to enable the development review process in particular environmental impact assessments (EIA) - to better encourage and promote development design that limits or reduces vulnerability to natural hazards. The component sections of this book are primarily descriptive, providing the background and a framework for the integration of assessment of natural hazards into EIA within the region. Specific tools, checklists and methodologies for use or adaptation within NHIA-EIA are presented within the extensive annexes to the Sourcebook.

The sourcebook is an attempt to ensure that natural hazard risk is explicitly addressed during the project cycle, the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) and Caribbean Community (CARICOM)'s Adapting to Climate Change in the Caribbean Project has developed guidelines for natural hazard impact assessments and their integration into environmental impact assessment procedures.
