Assessing the vulnerability to climate change of small scale fisheries: The Grenada example

Assessing the vulnerability to climate change of small scale fisheries: The Grenada example

Small scale fisheries, critical to the livelihoods, coastal economies and food security of coastal communities, are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.

As such, developing sustainable resource management for this sector depends on our ability to predict the risk of climate change on small scale fisheries and harness the capacity of coastal communities to cope or adapt with these changes.

This chapter describes progress to date in building a spatial vulnerability assessment of Grenada fisheries. A framework to guide these types of assessments, the indicators developed to date, and the challenges and opportunities encountered in building the Grenada fisheries vulnerability assessment are discussed.
