Jeppesen, Gorm; Jensen, Roar; Tomicic, Berislav; Miralles-Wilhelm, Fernando; Muñoz Castillo, Raúl
The case study in this report concerns Sea Level Rise in Trinidad and Tobago with the following overall objectives: 1. Define, in terms of measurable quantitative variables, the vulnerability of the water and sanitation sector in Trinidad and Tobago with respect to sea level rise. 2. Contribute to strengthen the capacity of the water and sanitation sector to adaptively respond to sea level rise through climate change in terms of the development planning and reducing the vulnerability in Trinidad and Tobago. 3. Contribute to the establishment of guidelines for "best practices" in adaptation to climate change with respect to potential effects of sea level rise in the water and sanitation sector in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) through this case study in Trinidad and Tobago. 4. Contribute to the Bank's across-the-board efforts to classify, monitor and evaluate its investments in reducing the vulnerability of climate change in the region.
