INFOGRAPHIC: CDKN funded research in the Caribbean shows that national policy and institutions are vital for climate adaptation

New analysis of over a decade’s-worth of research on climate change in the Caribbean, suggests that national governments are important drivers of co-ordinated climate change action in the region. The research acknowledges the importance of ‘bottom-up’, community level approaches, but found that in isolation they are insufficient to meet the complex challenges posed by climate change. Delivering coordinated climate change action at the regional, national and local level, therefore was shown to require government to actively intervene to drive the process. To that extent, the research suggests that climate change adaptation is a question of governance.

As part of this process, CDKN produced this infographic identifying best practice lessons on CDKN’s work on governance, highlighting examples from applied case studies in Caribbean countries, and recommending tools and methods that can be applied to make governance frameworks more effective at delivering climate compatible development.
