PropertyValue
Name090901 - Impacts of climate change in the Caribbean - Sumary - UNDP
Description
The impacts of a changing climate on the Caribbean and the islands of the Pacific are increasingly being manifested in economic and financial losses. According to the World Bank, in 2007 the Caribbean suffered US $10 billion in economic losses from weather related events representing over 13% of gross domestic product (GDP). While there is limited information on the economic impacts of climate change in the Pacific islands, predictions of SLR and other climate related impacts present significant risks to water, food security, coastal settlements, infrastructure and economic development, particularly for those small low lying atoll countries.
