The Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre, the Ministry of the Environment and Housing in The Bahamas, and the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) partnered last month for another in a series of country-specific roll-outs for the Caribbean Climate Online Risk and Adaptation Tool (C-CORAL) in The Bahamas.
“C-CORAL is an online support system for climate resilient decision making that helps users undertake quick screening to understand climate influence and apply climate risk management processes,” said Environment & Housing Minister, Ken Dorsett. “The climate support system will ultimately help decision makers to see all kinds of activities through a ‘climate’ or ‘climate change’ lens, and to identify actions that minimize climate-related loss.”
Minister Dorsett noted that about 28 persons representing Government Agencies, Non-Governmental Organizations, Community Based Organizations and the Private Sector were attending the hands-on training workshop.
“They will learn how to respond to high variability in the current climate, unintended societal stresses, economic sector impacts, and natural environment impacts caused by such variations,” said Minister Dorsett.
The C-CORAL tool will facilitate appropriate action(s) in applying a risk management approach to decision making — ultimately delivering for The Bahamas climate resilient development, said the Minister.
