Barbados is a small island developing state, contributing negligibly to global greenhouse gas emissions (0.004%). The sectors most vulnerable to climate change are agriculture, fisheries, tourism, water, human health, coastal resources and human settlements. Barbados has been implementing a number of adaptation plans to combat the challenges posed by climate change. These adaptation plans have been supported by organizations such as the World Bank which implemented the Caribbean Planning for Adaptation to Climate Change (CPACC), executed by the Organization of American States (OAS) and overseen by CARICOM. In addition to its involvement in a number of regional projects, such as the Mainstreaming Adaptation to Climate Change: Caribbean Community (MACC) project, Barbados is one of a few Caribbean countries that also is benefitting from nationally-focused adaptation activities focused on coastal zone management, disaster risk management and institutional strengthening.
