The Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) will launch a new project aimed at reducing the impact of climate change in the sub-region, recently affected by significant landslides.
This strategy, which includes the nine nations forming the bloc, is based on a global project on climate change, adaptation to this process, and sustainable land management. According to the director of the plan, Chamberlain Emmanuel, the implementation of this new project is geared at improving the base of natural resources and the resistence of the region to the impact of climate change.
In order to achieve these goals, it will be essential the existence of an efficient policy of sustainable land management and the adoption of specific physical adaptation measures, including the stabilization of land, soil, rivers, and seas, as well as the restoration of forests and ecosystems.
This initiative arises because of the concern of specialists in the region for the possible effects of climate change in the small island states and the economies of the OECS.
