Dubai, December 6 (RHC) -- The Adaptation Plan for Havana's coastal zone will be presented today at the Cuban Pavilion set up at the 28th United Nations Climate Change Conference -COP28.

According to the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment -Citma-, this project will benefit more than 700 thousand inhabitants of the northern coast of the Cuban capital, which is particularly vulnerable to sea level rise and extreme weather phenomena.

The initiative announced in 2022 will make it possible to identify the risks and vulnerability of each sector and population group, adopt adaptation measures and make investment decisions. The plan includes six coastal municipalities, from Santa Ana, in Playa, to Rincón de Guanabo, in Habana del Este.

This project has an implementation period of 4.5 years and is financed with three million dollars, supported by the Green Climate Fund and implemented by the United Nations Development Program in Cuba in alliance with the Environment Agency of the Citma.

With the slogan Route to Adaptation to Climate Change, the plan known as AdaptHabana aims to contribute to closing gaps that inhibit the development of comprehensive analyses of risks and vulnerability to climate change, as well as the formulation of viable proactive solutions that can be coherently integrated into existing development plans.
