In this context, CCARR Centre was founded as a resource for small island and coastal communities internationally to address the human dimensions of climate change. The Centre will focus on impacts of climate change and how communities can best prepare for and respond to its many risks.
About the Project
While the collection and display of individual stories is powerful, this project presents an opportunity to highlight the impacts that natural hazards have on human lives and the societal ripple effects. This project hopes to address the different experiences, assess issues of inequalities in our Bahamian society, and issues of vulnerability faced by at-risk communities.
It is our hope that this project informs the Bahamian and international community on the challenges of a changing climate on an island state, and to influence national policies and procedures on disaster management in The Bahamas.
