Caribbean Scenarios 2050 cover


Centre for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (CERMES) Faculty of Science and Technology, The University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus, Barbados As part of the GoLoCarSce project to understand the complexity of future climate changes on Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS), socio-economic and political frameworks needed to be developed to contextualise the projected scientific changes. Under the climate scenarios climatic, environment and bio-physical changes will be exacerbated, adapted to or mitigated against based on the Caribbean’s societal construct. Foresight scenarios have been developed to be used as tools for understanding the societal implications of the impacts of climate change on various natural resources and, as a result, future livelihoods.
