PALMISTE, Grenada, Apr 27 2015 (IPS) - Grenada and its tourism-dependent Caribbean neighbours are thought to be among the globe’s most vulnerable countries to the myriad impacts of climate change, especially coastal flooding due to natural disasters and storm surges.
Marine ecosystems are also already being affected by increased ocean temperature, and increased freshwater run-off resulting in coral reef destruction and food chain interruption, which in turn affect the fishing and tourism industries.
Just ask Grenada’s fishermen, whose catch is steadily vanishing – along with their livelihoods.
