    Project
    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.
