August 6, 2020 – With more intense hurricanes and climate extremes, mass sargassum influxes and the ongoing challenge of COVID-19, building resilience is a priority for Caribbean small island developing states (SIDS). A new report on “Rising to the climate challenge: Coastal and marine resilience in the Caribbean” from the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) highlights key lessons and innovations to build the resilience of coastal communities, livelihoods and the natural resources they depend on.
