Port of Spain, July 26, 2023 – Building the resilience of vulnerable coastal communities in Trinidad and Tobago through the use of innovative digital technologies for more inclusive and evidence-based decision-making is the focus of the new Tech4CoastalResilience project being implemented by the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) in partnership with the Fisheries Division, Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries and the Department of Marine Resources and Fisheries, Tobago House of Assembly.

Coastal communities are facing growing challenges from sea level rise, coastal erosion and extreme weather events due to the climate crisis. However, assessments to date of these challenges have been hampered by a lack of access to data and technical capacity, leading to gaps in coastal management responses and the planning and implementation of suitable climate actions.
