Published on March 11, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

THE VALLEY, Anguilla -- On Tuesday, the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) and the government of Anguilla present the national launch of the new Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) project on climate change adaptation and sustainable land management in the Eastern Caribbean.

The project, which is supported by the European Union to the tune of 10.6 million Euros, targets all OECS member states and is geared at improving the region’s natural resource base resilience to the impacts of climate change through:

• Effective and sustainable land management policy, capacity, awareness, and practices; and

• Implementation of specific physical adaptation measures, including soil and land stabilization, river and sea defence, forest and ecosystem restoration.

The Anguilla launch of the project launch will be followed by a meeting of its national committee for the implementation of the project’s activities.
