Environmental organizations engage press to tell story of plans to protect Belize from climate change

Posted: Saturday, May 15, 2021. 12:29 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Personnel of the Belize office of REDD+ (Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) and National Climate Change Office are engaging with members of the press here as part of national preparedness to take advantage of opportunities for national development.

While the NCCO has been actively reaching out to vulnerable communities, emphasizing what they are already doing and can do, Chief National Climate Change Officer Lennox Gladden said more work needs to be done.

The press are being asked to add their considerable collective voice to the environmental cause but the question is how.

In the case of REDD+, it is a long-term commitment to safeguarding the national forests and making people aware of the value of that forest resource to keeping the climate balanced and being able to feed themselves and others and to enjoy the resources given to us.

The REDD+ readiness phase of the project ends in December after which the project moves to implementation and later to monitoring and assessment.

The urgency of this project is tied to the greater climate agenda, said Gladden, especially in Belize’s case where we produce minimal emissions, and to produce needed information about the country’s systems that will guide policy and decision making moving forward.
