Dominican Republic

Increasing climate variability in Dominican Republic threatens water supply and critical coastal resources with disproportionate effects to all Dominicans. USAID is working with four targeted priority municipalities to reduce climate risks.  This will be accomplished by improving climate-relevant information and developing municipal land use planning processes.  With this, USAID aims to improve the decision-making process and increase the adoption of adaptation measures, with a particular focus on protecting water resources and reducing disaster risks. USAID is also supporting the production and marketing of an index insurance product for the reduction of climate risks of small farmers in the country.
