Coastal Resilience in Cuba

Coastal Resilience in Cuba

“Coastal biodiversity in Cuba such as coral reefs, sea grass beds and mangroves promotes economic, social and cultural development. They are important for Cuba’s future resilience.” 🌿
- Dr. Sergio Lorenzo, project coordinator.


The archipelago is vulnerable to extreme weather events and sea level rise. Newly, the three years GCCA+’s initiative, Resiliencia Costera, implements natural solutions for adaptation to climate change in Cuba, such as the rehabilitation of marine ecosystems 🌊
As the cultural and social ties of the communities depend a lot on the coast, the project also aims to build resilience among inhabitants by focusing on food security, renewable energy and by strengthening disaster planning.
