Challenge

The Caribbean islands are particularly vulnerable to the uncertainties of climate impact. We provided project management skills and tools to support stakeholders develop their strategies for long-term asset protection.

Engain was instructed by the Government of Barbados to prepare its Second National Communications Report (SNC), for a United Nations funded research assignment.  As a UNFCCC signatory to the Kyoto Protocol, Barbados is required to report Climate Change activities to the Conference of the Parties.
