A major Climate Change impact assessment will be conducted in 2017 going into 2018.
That is the word of the Chief Environmental Officer Ambassador Dian- Black Layne who made the announcement while speaking on ZDK’s Your Views this morning.
She said that this initiative will be funded by the Greene Climate Fund (GCF) which is mandated to make an ambitious contribution to the united global response to climate change.
Black Layne said that a total of $3 million dollars will be provided to carry out this assessment.
Climate Change continues to be of major concern especially for Caribbean islands like Antigua and Barbuda that are prone to higher temperatures, and rising in sea levels which can lead to catastrophic environmental damage.
