Building a climate resilient water sector in the Caribbean: strategies for water utilities

Date: 23 Aug 2015 to 24 Aug 2015

Time: 8:30 PM

Location: MIAMI, United States

Senior Water Sector professionals from across the Caribbean met on August 23 – 24 to identify better ways of planning for the impact of climate change on the region’s water supply and systems. The meeting, co-hosted by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), took the form of a workshop entitled “Building a Climate Resilient Water Sector in the Caribbean: Strategies for Water Utilities.” It was held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Miami, Florida, USA.

Some 50 water utility professionals, field personnel and experts explored climate change impacts on the Caribbean water sector and strategies to strengthen resiliency. In addition, participants worked together to create action plans to protect their countries’ water resources in the face of these impacts.

CDB collaborated with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Caribbean Water and Wastewater Association and the Global Water Operators’ Partnership Alliance to present the training event. The climate resiliency workshop precedes the 24th Caribbean Water and Wastewater Association Conference, which took place on August 24-28, 2015 in Miami.
