The Project Development Objective (PDO) is to enhance community-based climate resilience among targeted fishing communities of Jamaica.

  • diversification and viable alternative livelihoods that enhance sustainable fisheries, and
  • capacity building and Public Disclosure Authorized Public Disclosure Authorized Public Disclosure Authorized Public Disclosure Authorized awareness raising among the fishing and fish farming communities.

These measures would be implemented in a participatory approach with the targeted fisheries communities. While national and international best practices will inform the design and implementation of the supported activities, the use of local knowledge will be crucial to the success of the Project.
