Source(s):  Barbados Advocate, the

The Barbados Advocate announces that the government, with the assistance of the Inter American Development Bank, is undertaking a Coastal Risk Assessment and Management Programme aimed at building resilience to coastal hazards in general and, in particular, climate change. "Through this project, the Coastal Zone Management Unit (CZMU) is currently working on incorporating coastal climate change adaptation technologies and methods, as well as disaster risk reduction considerations into integrated coastal zone management processes," the Prime Minister of Barbados, Freundel Stuart, said. The project is expected to deliver a comprehensive evaluation of the risks and vulnerabilities of Barbados to sea level related hazards such as storm surges and tsunamis, he added.
