About the webinar
What lessons can be learned from seven years’ of climate change resilience research in the Caribbean?
This is the question that drives recent analysis from the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN). In the course of its work in the Caribbean, CDKN has supported a variety of projects, from helping to develop regional climate data/ information to improving our understanding of community approaches to adaptation and resilience.
CDKN has now published a series of four ‘knowledge packages’ consisting of policy briefs, infographics and videos, that provide an analysis of the work carried out under four research projects.
This webinar presents the main findings of the four knowledge packages, which touch on four cross-cutting themes:
- climate risks to the Caribbean: making the case for climate resilience investment;
- the role of national government in driving climate resilience action;
- regionally downscaled climate data and how to use if for decision making; and
- local-level approaches for climate resilience building.
Participants will also have the chance to ask questions of key experts involved in the original research*.

*The projects that were included in the analysis are: the ‘Supporting risk-based decision-making in the Caribbean’ (CARIWIG) project, the Caribbean Climate Online Risk and Adaptation tool (CCORAL), the ‘Global Islands’ Vulnerability Research, Adaptation, Policy and Development’ (GIVRAPD) project, and the Caribbean Research call.
