The Caribbean: Navigating through changing risks - Droughts in the Anthropocene

Language: English

Water scarcity in the Caribbean islands is an increasing problem, growing with the expansion of the tourism industry, population growth, urbanization and ineffective water management and strategies. During the 2009-2010 drought, several important capacity issues were uncovered, including limits in early warning systems, inadequate policies and plans and limited finances to implement and sustain key activities. Since then, significant progress has been made in monitoring, forecasting and mitigation, thanks in part to the Latin American and Caribbean Drought Atlas produced by UNESCO’s International Hydrological Programme (IHP).
