Building resilience in the eye of the storm – Agriculture in the Caribbean and Central America

Source(s):  Swiss Reinsurance Company (Swiss Re)

This report gives an overview of the state of agricultural resilience to natural hazards in the Caribbean and Central America today and outlines measures that could ensure resilient and profitable farming in the future.

By 2050, the farmers of our world are expected to have to feed a staggering 9.8 billion people, up from 7.5 billion today. With fertile soils and a conducive climate, Central America and the Caribbean are uniquely positioned to supply farm products to growing markets worldwide. But the outdoor business of farming is exposed to many perils in the region: hurricanes, droughts, floods and storms, all of which are set to increase with climate change.
