Saint Kitts and Nevis
National Biodiversity Strategy & Action Plan - 2014-2020
The Ministry of Sustainable Development released the National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan in 2014 to establish a framework of targets, principles and priorities over biodiversity. The Kittitian government recognises that climate change might indulge sever impacts to the country including via a sea level rise leading to coastal erosion, increase in drought, tropical storms, floods, changes in rainfall, and ultimately biodiversity alterations.
In order to enable national ecosystems and populations to strive, the government pledges to take green economy interventions, notably towards greater energy efficiency, sustainable land use in the agriculture and forestry sector, and increased awareness. The Strategy further calls to enhance the institutional framework to enable overall climate change adaptation.
