The government in Saint Lucia is taking action through the development of policies as well as targeted investment and interventions to facilitate climate change adaptation action.

However civil society organisations are not in a position to play an effective role due to constraints on existing policies, structure and processes.

The briefing suggestions include:

National climate change adaptation efforts must include the involvement of civil society to be effective.
Several barriers within the prevailing policy, legal and institutional environment limit effective responses by civil society.
Climate change policy needs to be strengthened to enable enhanced national adaptation efforts.

These changes are needed, the briefing suggests, to help strngthen institutional capacity to adapt to climate change.
