Jamaica is a small island developing state in the Caribbean and particularly vulnerable to hurricanes, floods, storm surges, droughts, and other climate-related hazards. The programme by several Jamaican government agencies seeks to protect the livelihoods and food security of people living in seven of the country’s 14 parishes by improving water harvesting and management, as well as erosion and flood control. The programme will also support climate resilient coastal management in Negril.

 

The sites selected for programme intervention will cover seven of the 14 parishes in the country: Westmoreland, Manchester, Clarendon, St. Mary, St. Ann, Trelawny and St. Thomas.
