What is Resiliencia Costera all about?

Fifteen coastal municipalities in four provinces of Cuba, Villa Clara, Sancti Spíritus, Ciego de Ávila and Camagüey, will benefit from actions that enhance the resilience of vulnerable coastal settlements, through the transfer of natural solutions for Adaptation to climate change Based on Ecosystems (EbA) and Community Based Adaptation (CbA). It is also promoted in support of local governments, the integrated approach to adaptation to climate change and disaster risk reduction for territorial development planning. Direct interventions are planned in four of these municipalities, and replication of best practices will be carried out in the remaining eleven municipalities, which will benefit more than 600,000 people from the participating towns.




With the financial support of the European Union, through the GCCA+ initiative, and the technical support of the United Nations Development Program, under the leadership of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment of Cuba through the Environment Agency, the actions of the project complement the national efforts for the implementation of the State Plan to confront Climate Change in the Republic of Cuba.
