DescriptionThe project will support Caribbean countries in preparing to cope with adverse effects of climate change, and particularly sea level rise. It will (i) strengthen the regional capacity to monitor and analyze sea-level dynamics and trends; (ii) identify areas particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change; (iii) develop an integrated management and planning framework for cost-effective response and adaptation to climate change in coastal and marine areas; (iv) provide training and institutional strengthening to enhance regional and national capacities for preparing for climate change; (v) identify and assess policy options (protection, retreat, accommodation) and instruments that would initiate long-term adaptation to climate change; and (vi) assist information sharing.
Implementation StatusAs of 3/29/2002 the project is closed. Project implementation concluded in a satisfactory manner and a draft Implementation Completion Report (ICR) is already available and expected to be submitted to Board on the Second Quarter of FY2003. The project achieved all of its outputs and constitutes a solid base on which to build future adaptation activities for the region and elsewhere.
