Climate specialist not satisfied with Caribbean preparations towards climate change

first_imgLocalNews Climate specialist not satisfied with Caribbean preparations towards climate change by: – October 14, 2011 Image via: patrickdriessen.blogspot.comClimate Change Specialist Dr Michael Taylor says he is not satisfied that Caribbean governments are prepared to make necessary changes to mitigate the effects of climate change on the agriculture sector.Taylor who is here as part of the 10th Caribbean Week of Agriculture delegates told an interview with the Government Information Service that some improvements have been made.“I am not satisfied but I believe our Caribbean governments are waking up to the possibilities of climate change. We have the CARICOM Climate Chance center in Belize which is trying to play a leading role in informing ministers and heads of government,’ he said.According to Taylor, the increase variability of the climate is almost forcing Caribbean governments to “stop and take a look”.“The heat, the rain, the drought, the hurricanes…I believe that this is forcing Caribbean governments to stop and take a look and I am sensing receptiveness,” he added. He said farming is a vulnerable sector due to the dependence on rainfall.“We need to start acting now because our action now will be a significant determination of what kind of future we will have. We want to get that message out there. It must be considered,” he added.Dominica Vibes News 6 Views   no discussions Tweet Sharecenter_img Share Share Sharing is caring!last_img read more
