    No results found.

    This document presents the findings of a comparative study which was conducted in 2012, of disaster risk management (DRM) plans in the Caribbean, with focus on the agriculture sector. The study includes the following Caribbean countries: Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, British Virgin Islands, Cuba, Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, Trinidad an d Tobago and Turks and Caicos. The document includes specific recommendations related to the development of Agriculture DRM plans (ADRM) within various Ministries of Agriculture throughout the region, the scaling up of awareness raising and education programmes that target all stakeholders, the identification of a regional institution to monitor and hold countries accountable to develop and implement plans within an agreed timeframe and the establishment of a forum to share best practices and in novative technologies for ADRM plans in order to further strengthen the technical capacities within the Ministries of Agriculture (MoAs).

    FAO’s support for agricultural and food value chain development has aimed at strengthening agricultural diversification in Barbados and member countries of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), but this work on value chains needs to be more market-oriented in order to succeed, says an evaluation report. Conducted by the FAO Office of Evaluation in 2015, the evaluation assessed FAO’s contributions in Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

    Enhancing Resilience to Climate Change Impacts in the Eastern Caribbean Fisheries Sector - GCP/SLC/202/SCF 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The Caribbean region is already experiencing some obvious impacts of climate change, including coral bleaching, increasing frequency of high-intensity storms and hurricanes, increased sea level, and sargassum influxes, which are disrupting fishing operations, fish landings, and fisher livelihoods. The seven countries participating in the project – Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago – are highly dependent on the fisheries sector for food security, livelihoods, and household income. Coastal communities and fisherfolk (men and women involved in all aspects of the sector) are considered to be particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. In addition to the threats of climate change, the fisheries sector is already suffering from other pressures such as overfishing, loss of habitat, pollution, disturbance of coral reefs, and invasive species, with climate change further exacerbating these problems. Against this background, the project aimed to increase resilience and reduce vulnerability to climate change impacts in the fisheries sector in the seven target countries, through the introduction of adaptation measures in fisheries management and capacity building of fisherfolk and aquaculturists.
