Implications of Climate Change in Mexico, the Caribbean & Central America Hardback
Edited by Samuel B. Duncan
Mexico, the countries of the Caribbean and Central America are at risk from the impacts of climate change in the next 20 years because they will be exposed to a greater range of climate changes and have a relatively weak adaptive capacity when compared to the world at large.
Within the region, climate change is evident in increased temperatures, changes in precipitation, and sea level rise, and perhaps in weather variability and natural disaster events.
Countries discussed in this book include Belize, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, and Puerto Rico.
