Environmental Impact Assessment & Coastal Zone Management
It is essential to identify and quantify environmental impacts before designing in a coastal zone environment. We work with your architects and engineers to ensure you are working with, rather than against natural phenomena and mitigating risks that will affect the success of your finished project.
We are experts at developing and adopting strategies that avoid, minimize, or alleviate those impacts so it is good for the environment and just as good for your business. Regulations vary throughout the Caribbean, and our regional experience means that we understand the process in many jurisdictions so that your project has an easier time gaining approvals.
Where environmental impact cannot be avoided, we have performed successful coral and seagrass transplantation projects, and tracked those with regular monitoring programmes. Seagrass is one example of a risk mitigation solution that controls erosion.
