Caribbean countries share similar economic and sustainable development challenges, including a small population, remoteness, susceptibility to natural disasters, and most importantly, vulnerability to climate change and climate variability. Given the current condition of the marine environment, most coastal areas have few defences against the raging surfs of hurricanes and tropical storms, and the likely consequences would be significant to coastal damage including beach erosion and infrastructure damage. Negative impacts associated with climate change on land, water resources and biodiversity have also been predicted, and ultimately, tourism and agriculture will be negatively impacted by these changes. Meanwhile, even though Caribbean countries emit relatively small amounts of greenhouse gas, they will suffer disproportionately from the impacts of climate change.
