By Aaron Humes: Belizeans will get a chance to share their feelings on the issue of climate change and impact on the country in a survey hosted by The National Climate Change Office under the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management in collaboration with the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC), and the National Red Cross.
The Knowledge Attitude and Practice (KAP) survey is a key output of the communications component of the project, “Enhancing Climate Resilience in CARIFORUM Countries”, which is funded by the European Union (EU) under the Intra-ACP Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (GCCA+).
The project is part of a global programme seeking to support the climate compatible development of the CARIFORUM countries to combat the negative impacts of climate change and disasters, while simultaneously exploring opportunities presented.
A series of 100-degree days or monsoon-like rains may often be shrugged off as one of those things, but even as Caribbean countries are expected to face more adverse weather events, many citizens have not connected extreme weather events to climate change. Awareness of how climate change can and will intersect every aspect of daily life is also lacking. The findings from Belize’s Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices (KAP) on Climate Change and its subsequent use in developing a National Climate Change Public Education and Outreach Strategy will make these connections and close knowledge gaps.
Belize is one of five (5) CARIFORUM countries participating in the survey. The others are The Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Saint Kitts & Nevis, and the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Each country’s National Red Cross team will call or visit randomly selected households, in all instances strictly observing national COVID 19- safety protocols, to administer the survey. The National Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices (KAP) Survey on Climate Change commenced on September 1, 2021 and concludes in October.
