Thursday, September 4, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: Today the Ministry of Fisheries, Forestry and Sustainable Development hosted stakeholders in a meeting in Belize City to present the draft of the National Climate Change Action Plan and Strategy for validation.
It represents over a year’s worth of consultations with key stakeholders in several major sectors from agriculture to tourism.
The plan seeks to address how Belize reacts to climate change going forward in everything from the building of streets to protection of animal and plant species.
Local participants are working with the United Nations Development Programme and other international agencies to promote the issue of climate change.
Belize’s UNDP representative Diane Wade Moore urged participants of today’s workshop at the Radisson Hotel to be participatory and do more to own the plan and strategy as it will be integrated into existing plans of the Government where appropriate.
After today’s consultation some more tweaking will be done to the plan before implementation takes place.
