Adapting to climate change in the Caribbean to conserve natural resources and diversify farming and forest management

German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)

The objective of the project is to improve the adaptive capacity of rural economic systems and natural resources to climate change in 8 CARICOM member states.
Climate change is a dynamic, complex process with sudden and erratic effects. Promising adaptation measures thus have to be flexible and resilient. The project is active in eight of the 15 CARICOM member states. Target groups include the local communities and the various civil society organisations, e.g. for farmers, fishermen, employees in the tourism industry and small and medium-sized business owners. The project’s lead executing agency is the CARICOM Secretariat with its Council of Ministers for agriculture, rural development and climate change. Support includes advisory services, training, procurement of material goods as well as financing and assistance agreements, local subsidies and the establishment of dialogue platforms to implement the measures for adaptation to climate change impacts.
