Publication Abstract

This document provides guidance for Area Planning Committees to systematically assess the potential health, social, economic, institutional, and cultural impacts of oil spills – what are often called “human dimensions impacts.” This information can inform contingency planning and lead to more successful responses. The approach offered is called a Human Dimensions Impact and Vulnerability Assessment (HDIVA).
