Mainstreaming Adaptation to Climate Change in the
Caribbean A Description
  • by
  • Leisa Perch
  • MACC PDF-B Technical Coordinator, Organization of
    American States

2
Overriding Challenge in CC Adaptation in the
Caribbean
  • To elevate Climate Change to the regional
    political agenda where it becomes a national and
    regional planning issue rather than a matter
    assigned to sectoral ministries
  • (CPACC PAID Strategy,1999, p.7)

3
Genesis of MACC
  • Follow up project to CPACC
  • Approved for processing on an exception basis by
    GEF based on track record of CPACC and expected
    to play a pioneering role for island nations
  • Request for GEF funding for 5.0 million

MACC (Mainstreaming Adaptation to Climate
Change in the Caribbean) Objectives
  • Mainstreaming adaptation to climate change in
    national development planning and private sector
  • Formulation of specific adaptation measures
    (demonstration pilots) and of a regional position
    on adaptation
  • Expanding and strengthening the existing
    monitoring network and the capacity to develop
    impact scenarios based on Regional Climate Models
  • Cross-regional dissemination and replication of
    MACC results

  • Developing pilot projects for replication across
    the region
  • Inculcating national decision-making processes
    with climate change considerations

9
Challenges in Mainstreaming CC
  • Convincing policymakers and members of the public
    that CC is a reality and should be a priority
  • Ensuring that the public knows that CC is and how
    it can affect their lives and future generations
  • Finding the best and/or most effective methods to
    disseminate information on CC
  • Maintaining a regular flow of information

10
MACC Preparation Process a start
  • Consultations at regional and national levels on
    the design of project activities and selection of
    demonstration activities
  • Establishment of a Technical Steering Committee
  • Technical studies to strengthen monitoring
    network and to identify modeling tools and
    methodologies for impact assessment
  • Design of capacity building and public awareness
    strategies this workshop represents a beginning
  • Preparation of project document

11
MACC Design Process Upcoming Activities
  • Stakeholder Workshop (CPACC, MACC ACCC) May
    2002

  • Climate and Integrated Resource Management (June
    2002)
  • Climate, Insurance and Disaster Prevention (June

12
Dissemination and Replication a Component of
the MACC project
  • MACC aims to
  • support the implementation of national
    policies and the regional agenda on climate
    change.
  • As such it must address issues of education,
    information and awareness.

13
How could MACC address these issues?
  • Education capacity-building, training and
    support activities at the national and regional
    level
  • Information flow of information, providing
    mechanisms for information, information-sharing,
    information for decision-making, advocacy
  • Awareness promoting change at the
    individual,community, local, national and
    regional level developing and disseminating
    communication tools

14
What does MACC need from you?
  • MACC needs your help in determining
  • Who should we target?
  • What should we tell them?
  • How should we send the message?
  • When should we send the message?
  • Who can help us reach our common goal?
  • Where do we want to be in 5, 10, 15 years from
    now?
