Project Execution

Highlights:

  • Caribbean countries share similar economic and sustainable development challenges, including a small population, remoteness, susceptibility to natural disasters, and most importantly, vulnerability to climate change and climate variability. Given the current condition of the marine environment, most coastal areas have few defenses against the raging surfs of hurricanes and tropical storms, and the likely consequences would be significant to coastal damage including beach erosion and infrastructure damage.
  • We assembled a team of specialists in policy development, climate change, environmental analysis, stakeholder engagement, and training workshops. The goal of this project was to develop and design a National Adaptation Plan (NAP) to prepare Belize for the anticipated changes that will occur to food, water, and energy systems as a result of increased climate change and resource/energy scarcity.
  • Design and development of a Roadmap and an integrated National Adaptation Plan (NAP) for the Agriculture and Water Sectors.

ESG Project Benefits:

  • Climate risk, vulnerability assessment, gender analysis, and identification of sustainable development efforts most at risk from climate change.
  • In-country training workshops and policy and regulatory development to address anticipated changes to food, water, and energy systems as a result of increased climate change and resource/energy scarcity.
  • Assisting Belize in preparation for the negative affects of climate change towards agriculture and the water sector facilitates a strong and growing economy.
