Sandy Shorelines


With the aim of deepening this research, and considering the environmental and socio-economic importance of the impact of beach erosion in the countries of the region, the Association of Caribbean States (ACS), in collaboration with the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and the Korean Institute of Oceanic Science and Technology (KIOST), have been developing since 2017 the project: “Impact Assessment of Climate Change on the Sandy Shorelines of the Caribbean. Alternatives for its control and resilience” (Sandy Shorelines) with the participation of 9 countries. This project is meant to help benefit all member states within the Greater Caribbean Region (GCR). The primary objective of this project is to help bolster the GCR’s coastal communities’ resilience to climate change and sea level rise. This goal will be achieved through the establishment of a regional erosion monitoring network and the sharing of beach rehabilitation, observation and preservation best practices.
