The Climate-smart Caribbean program was developed to generate and deliver region- and sector-specific information on climate change science, observed trends, expected future scenarios, and adaptation and mitigation solutions. The program is a collaboration among the USDA Caribbean Climate Hub, Cooperative Extension at the University of the Virgin Islands and the University of Puerto Rico, Winrock International, and the Climate Science Alliance, and is funded by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA).
The collaborators will provide workshops and training in Spanish and English to increase the level of climate-smart decision-making by farmers, ranchers, forest land managers, and the people and agencies that provide advice, technical expertise, and incentives.
The overall goal of Climate-smart Caribbean is to help reduce the effects and vulnerabilities to climate change and extreme climate events and develop relationships and connections to foster further knowledge development and technology transfer of climate-smart solutions in Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands. Program activities focus on learning, action, and evaluation.
