Enhancing the Climate Risk and Adaptation Fact Base for the Caribbean
Natural hazards already represent a significant risk to inhabitants and economies in the Caribbean. Annual expected losses from wind, storm surge and inland flooding amount to up to 6% of GDP in some countries. Climate change has the potential to greatly exacerbate these risks, and could increase expected loss by 1 - 3% of GDP by 2030. Climate change thus poses one of the most serious threats to development prospects in the Caribbean.
