Impact Assessment |
Coastal Systems International, Inc. has extensive
experience preparing Environmental Impact Assessments
(EIA) for development projects in the Caribbean islands.
Our team of engineers, biologists, geologists, and surveyors
examine the existing site conditions using the best available
technology and resources and evaluate the potential environmental
impacts of proposed development projects. We use innovative
planning technologies such as GIS and modeling to fulfill
our Client's individual goals, while protecting and enhancing
EIA preparation entails a thorough review of physical,
meteorological and oceanographic conditions of the project
site including wind, wave, tide, and current analysis,
topography, soil formations, water drainage, storm susceptibility,
and weather conditions. Marine and terrestrial ecosystems
such as coral reefs, seagrass beds, wetlands, dunes, and
maritime forests are also surveyed and documented. Freshwater
and utilities, historical, archeological, socio-cultural,
and other local or national resources may also be evaluated.
Throughout the EIA process, Coastal Systems staff offers
insightful multi-criteria recommendations to meet environmental
standards while enhancing opportunities for development.
We also assist in expediting EIA regulatory approval by
coordinating with local client representatives and government
agencies to address concerns during the review process.
