Ecosystem-based Adaptation and forest restoration in vulnerable rural communities within the Caribbean Biological Corridor
As of: May 2020
Objective and activities
The three Caribbean states Cuba, Dominican Republic and Haiti are highly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, particularly their rural poor communities. Through carefully selected and jointly developed EbA-interventions such as reforestation, erosion control and climate-smart agriculture, the programme plans to strengthen the resilience of rural communities towards climate change in all three countries. The population shall directly benefit from improved livelihoods and an improved capability of dealing with negative impacts of climate change. The programme will contribute to the conservation of biodiversity-relevant areas and work closely with relevant national and regional stakeholders. In addition, the Caribbean Biological Corridor (CBC) will be supported.
