Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management: Regional Strategy and Action Plan

The Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism (CRFM) has developed an updated Regional Strategy and Action Plan for Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management in Fisheries and Aquaculture (2020-2030). The original strategy and action plan was published in 2013, responding to the direction of CARICOM Heads of Government to use regional delivery frameworks as platforms to address climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk management (DRM) in fisheries and aquaculture. Both the original strategy and action plan and this updated version benefited from consultation with CARICOM Member States. Both versions also built from the regional policy context contained in the Regional Framework for Achieving Development Resilient to Climate Change, which was designed to significantly increase the resilience of the region and ensure that the welfare of Caribbean residents is not adversely impacted by the multi-faceted impacts of climate change. This updated Strategy and Plan of Action for the sector takes into account progress made so far, and is composed of nine Strategic Elements and associated Goals that provide specific guidance on priority actions for advancing resilience to climate change and variability.
