Caribbean to mitigate climate change

The Caribbean must develop effective strategies to mitigate the impact of climate change on the tourism sector and standards of living, a top tourism official said yesterday.

Joy Jibrilu, the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism’s director-general, addressing the opening of a Sustainable Tourism Policy Framework and Disaster Risk Management workshop, said: “With the recent impacts of climate change on global economies, it is imperative that regional communities such as the Caribbean region begin to recognize the enormous threat that this phenomenon has – not only on our tourism economy but our very standard of life – and urgently develop effective strategies to mitigate its impact on life, property and infrastructure.”
