A group of students plants a tree and smiles at the camera.

Youth aged 14 to 25 learned about the effects of climate change, ways to mitigate the risk, and how they can raise awareness in their communities through the USAID-funded Jamaica Rural Economy and Ecosystems Adapting to Climate Change project in 2018. The project provided climate change training to 2,146 youth and more than 147,000 trees were planted in a forest reserve.
