Port of Spain, July 22, 2019 – A new case study from the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) highlights key findings and priorities for institutional strengthening to improve readiness to adapt to climate change in the fisheries sectors of the United Kingdom Overseas Territories, Anguilla and Montserrat.

The fisheries sectors in Anguilla and Montserrat are highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, including rising sea levels and sea surface temperatures, more intense storms and ocean acidification.

One key aspect in addressing these impacts is ensuring “institutional readiness” to adapt in the fisheries sectors. Institutional readiness refers to the policies and plans, processes, mechanisms and resources that are in place to facilitate adaptation to climate change.
