Regional Strategic Action Plan for Governance and Building Climate Resilience in the Water Sector in the Caribbean
  • The water sector in the Caribbean will be seriously affected by climate change. Changes in the hydrological cycle, saline intrusion of ground water sources from sea level rise, and an increase in the intensity of extreme weather events will all have significant impacts on the supply of fresh water and on water infrastructure. The regional strategic action plan for governance and building climate resilience in the water sector is a response to these myriad challenges. It is the result of a series of discussions and meetings with stakeholders in the water sector in the Caribbean and a review of the literature on the sector.
