CPO’s Adaptation Sciences Program Supports the Development of a New Research for Action Agenda for Climate Change and Health in the Caribbean


NOAA’s Adaptation Sciences program provided support for the development of a comprehensive research agenda for climate and health in the Caribbean, encapsulated in the recently released “Research for Action on Climate Change and Health in the Caribbean: A Public, Private, People’s and Planetary Agenda.” This plan was kicked off through a landmark Conference on Climate Change and Health in SIDS: Focus on the Caribbean in October 2021, and followed by extensive engagement with stakeholders and experts across the region. The agenda identifies 18 research priority areas, including research gaps and needs for capacity building, to help Caribbean countries accelerate achievement of their climate and health goals. Key partners driving the process include Earth Medic/Earth Nurse, the Emory University School of Public Health, the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO), the University of the West Indies- Mona, and the Yale Center on Climate Change and Health.

NOAA’s support for this research agenda builds on the body of work supported by one of AdSci’s legacy programs- the International Research and Applications Program (IRAP) – and contributes to NOAA’s One Health efforts as well as the agency’s contributions to the President’s Emergency Plan for Adaptation and Resilience (PREPARE).
