The EU funded OECS GCCA Project on Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) and Sustainable Land Management (SLM) in the Eastern Caribbean was designed to improve the region’s natural resource base resilience to the impacts of climate change through effective and sustainable land management frameworks and practices (regulatory, capacity, awareness) and specific physical adaptation pilot projects.
The EUR 10.6 million project which effectively commenced in January 2014 will close in June 2019. OECS GCCA benefited to nine OECS participating Member States, namely Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
