By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The Ministry of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labour, and Local Government has collaborated with the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Climate Change, and Disaster Risk Management in a significant step towards a more resilient and integrated community.
The Ministries collaborated in a recent Local Project Advisory Committee (LPAC) meeting, focusing on the initiative project “Building Climate Change Resilience and Social Integration of Displaced People in Settlements of Western Belize.”
The heart of this initiative lies in the active engagement of stakeholders, particularly Village Councils representing the communities of Duckrun 1, 2 and 3, Los Tambos, Billy White, and Santa Familia in the Cayo District.
This strategic involvement ensures that the perspectives and needs of the local population are at the forefront of the project, fostering community-driven solutions.
This project is made possible through funding from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the European Union (EU).
The project’s core objectives revolve around building climate change resilience within the targeted communities.
Simultaneously, it seeks to enhance social integration for displaced communities, ensuring their seamless inclusion into the fabric of local life.
“By addressing these dual goals, the initiative aims to create a model for sustainable development that can be replicated and adapted in similar contexts globally,” the Ministry noted.
