CARICOM nations are working together

In the face of climate change, local, national and regional efforts to strengthen the resilience of coral reefs have never been more important for the people of the Caribbean.

Caribbean Community (CARICOM) nations understand the importance of healthy coral reefs and are concerned about the impacts of climate change on this vital 'natural infrastructure'. In particular, the vulnerability of reefs and associated environments puts at risk their range of economic, social and biodiversity benefits.

The location of CARICOM nations within the region is diverse - from the Bahamas in the North, to Belize in the west, to the twin isles of Trinidad and Tobago in the south. Each nation has its own unique challenges under a changing climate, but all are united in their passion and commitment to sharing knowledge and building capacity to protect coral reefs.
