Caribbean Planning for Adaptation to Global Climate Change (CARICOM)

Project Summary

The 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.
