PIRE in Belize–Meeting with Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre

Take a look at the post Christy Prouty contributed to the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre’s blog (5 C’s) after a meeting between PIRE associates and 5C’s scientists  this summer.

PIRE research in Belize integrates anthropologists and engineers in water and sanitation projects, education, and community heritage work in coastal communities to address issues (e.g. coastal water quality, growing population and tourism) whose impacts will be exacerbated by global climate change.

This post comes right after the dissemination of the 5th Assessment Report of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change  where this issue is underscored as a major challenge to Caribbean development.
