This paper proposes that all new construction or development projects shoulb be subjected to a climatic impact assessment (CIA) as part of the design process. CIA is a procedure that assesses the impacts of all the effects of future climate change on a proposed project, that is the effect of the environment on the development. This is the opposite of an environmental impact assessment, which examines the effeocft the development on the environment. The outcome of a CIA will be recommendations to ensure that the project will perform satisfactorily over its designed life span. This paper details the philosophy and mechanisms that constitute a CIA.
