Increase the water supply system resilience by managing aquifers recharge (MAR) and incorporating drought risks modelling as a planning tool for climate change adaptation measuresType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationCountries:Objective:Sectors:Cross-sectoral enabler:Approach:
St. Kitts and Nevis are already experiencing some of the effects of climate variability and change through damages from an increase in average atmospheric temperature, reduced average annual rainfall, and the potential for an increase in the intensity of tropical storms.
Conflicting and growing demands for water from various sectors place pressure on the limited financial resources available. The island has been exploring groundwater sources to meet demands. Access to critical information within the water sector is vital.
Developing a national framework for the standardization of stalls and procedures for a climate smart street side vendor in the BahamasType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationCountries:Sectors:
There is a consensus of the growing problem with street and roadside vendors in The Bahamas. Vendors are selling their goods without the necessary permits and breaching Covid-19 orders. The government of The Bahamas is taking steps to bring street vendors into the formal economy, with the development of enabling policies and fostering agriculture production. Currently, 90% of the food is imported in The Bahamas and there is an urgent need to become more self-sufficient.

There is consensus on the central role that private-sector actors are able to play to support the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC), as drivers of green growth, promoters of green supply chains, sources of investment in low-carbon and climate-resilient infrastructure, and as leaders of innovation in the development of clean technologies and the efficient use of resources.
Improving resilience of the education system to climate change impacts in the Eastern Caribbean region for Saint Lucia and Antigua and BarbudaType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationSectors:
Saint Lucia is a Small Island Development State (SIDS), which is highly at risk from climate change, mainly due to its location along the North Atlantic hurricane corridor, its small surface area, geographic location and its economic reliance on tourism and agriculture, which are climate-sensitive factors. The country’s limited capacity to reconstruct and reactivate its economy after climate-related shocks renders it highly vulnerable. Because of its small geographic size and dependence on natural resources any extreme weather event can have national implications.

The vulnerability of the Bahamas to the impacts of climate change is well known given its geographical vulnerabilities (limited land mass, low-relief and dispersion of islands, i.e., environmental vulnerabilities (high temperatures, storm surges, sea level rise, flooding, tropical cyclones and non-tropical processes), the concentration of socioeconomic activities and critical infrastructure in narrow coastal zones, its heavy dependence on tourism as a revenue source, and the limited human and institutional capacity.
