The Associated Press Profiles Climate Change in the Southern Caribbean

The Associated Press ran a comprehensive feature on climate change in the southern Caribbean this week, in which it cites the Centre’s key role in the regional response.

“The Caribbean Community Climate Change Center in Belize is managing the regional response.”

The expose also quoted significantly from the Centre’s landmark Implementation Plan: Delivering Transformational Change 2011-21. Implementing the CARICOM Regional Framework for Achieving Development Resilient to Climate Change.

“Twenty-one of 64 regional airports could be inundated. About 5 percent of land area in the Bahamas and 2 percent of Antigua & Barbuda could be lost. Factoring in surge from more intense storms means a greater percentage of the regional population and infrastructure will be at risk.”
