Adaptation Measures to Counter the Effects of Climate Change with a Focus on Water Resource Management and Flood Resilience 

Workshop - 20160706

Barbados is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.  The island receives significant rainfall, seasonally, yet it remains one of the most water‐scarce countries in the world.   It is predicted that with ongoing climate change, periods of both drought and flooding may become more prolonged in Barbados in the future.

USAID funded the AMCECC Programme, which included an initiative to lessen the possible effects of climate change, and increase the resilience of Barbados through public education.  The AMCECC Programme was implemented by W.F. Baird & Associates Coastal Engineers Ltd., and was coordinated by the Project Management Coordination Unit of the Ministry of Environment and Drainage.

This website is intended to provide an overview of, and access to the educational material that was produced as a result of this program.
