dc.descriptionThis report, commissioned by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Sub Regional Office for Barbados and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), focuses on the recommendations, which were prioritised by the Caribbean Community (CARICOM)Task Force on Climate Change and Development to be undertaken as soon as possible: (1) improving climate change modelling for taking informed decisions, and (2) improving predictions of impacts on key sectors and assessing adaptation measures. Specifically, this report provides a detailed and vigorous assessment of the losses and damages associated with SLR impacts on the population, ecosystems and key economic sectors in CARICOM.
