Climate Resilient Coastal Mangement and Infrastructure Program - CLME+ HUB

    Climate Resilient Coastal Mangement and Infrastructure Program

Brief Description:
The program's objective is to build resilience to coastal risks (including those associated with climate change) through sustainable coastal protection infrastructure, including natural infrastructure and integrated management of the coast. Specifically, the program will finance science-based shoreline stabilization and coastal flooding control measures in East Grand Bahama (EGB), Central Long Island and Nassau/Junkanoo Beach in New Providence, natural infrastructure for hazard resilience through restoration of coastal natural habitats (mangroves, reefs) in Andros and institutional strengthening for coastal risk management. This operation is expected to result in a reduction of economic losses due to natural disasters and an increase in local economic activity through coastal resilience.

El objetivo del programa es aumentar la resiliencia a los riesgos costeros (incluidos los asociados con el cambio clim谩tico) a trav茅s de una infraestructura de protecci贸n costera sostenible, incluida la infraestructura natural y la gesti贸n integrada de la costa. Espec铆ficamente, el programa financiar谩 medidas cient铆ficas de estabilizaci贸n costera y control de inundaciones costeras en East Grand Bahama (EGB), Central Long Island y Nassau / Junkanoo Beach en New Providence, infraestructura natural para la resiliencia a las amenazas a trav茅s de la restauraci贸n de h谩bitats naturales costeros (manglares, arrecifes) en Andros y fortalecimiento institucional para la gesti贸n del riesgo costero. Se espera que esta operaci贸n resulte en una reducci贸n de las p茅rdidas econ贸micas debido a desastres naturales y un aumento en la actividad econ贸mica local a trav茅s de la resiliencia costera.
