    PROJECT: Climate impacts and resilience in Caribbean agriculture

    This project aims to bridge the knowledge gap and increase the dialogue between cocoa and tomato growers and researchers in the Caribbean. It also seeks to establish a set of protocols that can be used to screen tropical plants for resilience to drought and heat stress and create models to help visualize the various ways that climate change could impact current crop production.

    PROJECT: Identifying opportunities for climate compatible tourism development in Belize

    Belize’s economic growth is inherently linked to expansion of the tourism industry, yet the activities of this industry often result in habitat degradation, undermining the very ecosystems on which it depends. This project will assess the vulnerability of Belize’s tourism system to climate change, including the coastal ecosystems on which it depends, and examine how current policies serve to facilitate or hinder climate-compatible tourism development, based on healthy coastal ecosystems.

    PROJECT: Assessing the potential impacts of climate change on Belize’s water resources

    Very little is known about the potential impacts of climate change on Belize’s water resources, despite this being identified as a priority area of research for the country. This project will use modeling to assess the potential impacts of climate change on the supply and demand for water and water quality in Belize across different climate change and land use scenarios and in so doing, will determine the hydrographic areas most vulnerable to climate change.

    PROJECT:Participatory research to enhance climate change policy and institutions in the Caribbean: ARIA pilot tool

    In many Caribbean countries, national and sectoral level policies are lagging behind the already evident threats to development from climate change despite the strong efforts made at the international and community level to adapt. The Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI), in collaboration with the World Resource Institute (WRI) and the St. Lucia National Trust (SLNT) is implementing a project in St. Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago to increase civil society engagement in policy and institutional analysis for climate change adaptation.
