The Government and the World Bank this morning signed an agreement for grant funding of US6.8 million to help Jamaica boost its resilience to climate change.

Among other things, the money will be used to gather data on the impact of climate change in Jamaica as well as ways to enhance the country’s response capabilities.

The agreement falls under the Ministry of Water, Land, Environment, & Climate Change, and will be implemented by the Planning Institute of Jamaica.

The Improving Climate Data & Information Management Project will look at capturing data on areas such as rainfall, land, surface temperature and sea level among other things.
