#Living with Climate Change Contest

CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION IN THE FISHERIES OF ANGUILLA AND MONTSERRAT are hosting the #Living with Climate Change contest as part of the Darwin Plus funded project Climate change adaptation in the fisheries of Anguilla and Montserrat from 2017-2020. The goal of the project is to mainstream climate change adaptation into fisheries governance and management in Anguilla and Monserrat, using an ecosystem approach to fisheries. The Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) is partnering with the Fisheries and Ocean Resources Unit, Ministry of Agriculture, Trade, Lands, Housing and Environment (MATLHE) in Montserrat for the contest.
Participants will help to document local perspectives on impacts of climate change and priorities for adaptation in the fisheries of Montserrat. They will add to local knowledge and share experiences and stories on impacts of climate change to the fisheries sector and associated livelihoods, and gather ideas and possible solutions and priorities for tackling climate change.
The stories shared via videos and photos will be used for awareness raising and mobilising action on climate change in Montserrat’s fisheries.
