INFORMATION BRIEF: Summary of sourcebook

The Caribbean Water Sector Sourcebook has been developed to support implementation of the Regional Framework for Achieving Development Resilient to Climate Change and Implementation Plan. It provides tools, methods and approaches to help planners and decision makers identify and implement actions which enhance water security and climate resilience in the region.

Key messages:

  • Water security supports economies, societies and the environment. It contributes to the overall resilience of the Caribbean.
  • Climate hazards threaten water security. Climate change could worsen these hazards and present new risks for the region.
  • Achieving climate resilience involves managing current climate risks and adapting to future climate changes.
  • The Sourcebook supports planners and decision makers to increase the resilience of water resources management and water services.
