The lecture, Climate change: implications for water, agriculture, and more in the Caribbean by Dr Michael Taylor was presented at the CARDI Public Consultation: Climate change, water availability for agriculture in a drier climate on 10 July 2012 in Antigua and Barbuda.
Climate Change not just a hot topic for the Region
Dr. Michael Taylor, Director of the Climate Studies Group, UWI Mona stated that the Region must pay serious attention to Climate Change since: our context commands it, our science suggests it and our future depends on it. Speaking at the public consultation in Antigua, Dr. Taylor stated that climate change cuts across all sectors and so all sectors must respond. The responses though must be aligned with sustainable development goals. The Region needs to adapt and according to Dr Taylor the adaptation options must be grounded on evidence based research. More importantly though the adaptation strategies MUST be integrated into national policies.
