NEAT+ Sensitivity Monitoring

This tool has been adapted to fit the context of locations from the crisis in the Northwest and Southwest Cameroon.

The NEAT+ is designed as a rapid and simple project-level environmental screening tool for humanitarian actors. The tool assesses the sensitivity of the crisis-affected environment, highlighting and categorising risks to the environment and affected communities. The tool also identifies potential activity related environmental risks posed by humanitarian relief and recovery projects.

The tool is not intended to assess the environmental impacts of a whole disaster or crisis, only the area(s) being assessed. It is a first step screening process that identifies key environmental issues for follow up. It does not substitute a more comprehensive analysis by a trained expert when needed. The tool provides some recommendations and mitigation ideas associated with potential risks, however it is the responsibility of the user to design and implement an environmental mitigation and monitoring plan.
