Port-of-Spain, December 12, 2022 – This Wednesday, December 14th 2022 at 2:15 p.m. AST, the Caribbean Strategy for Climate-Resilient Forests and Rural Livelihoods (CSCRFRL) developed by the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) will be launched to the public. To ensure the continued climate mitigation and adaption roles of forests, as well as protect their important goods and services, attention must be paid to ensuring the health and climate resilience of the region’s forests and this is the focus of the strategy that these two powerhouse environmental institutions will launch this week.

Regional Government leaders and officials, members of civil society and the media as well as vested/interested private citizens are all encouraged to attend and learn more about the strategy and how it can be applied to lessen the threats posed to Caribbean forests now and in the future.
