TOURISM MINISTER OF BARBADOS INTERVIEWED IN BRITISH HIGH COMMISSION’s CLIMATE CHANGE FILM LAUNCHED AT CANCUN
The British High Commission in Barbados, together with the Department for International Development Caribbean (DFIDC), has provided funding for a new film about climate change in the Caribbean which includes footage from several Caribbean countries including Barbados, St. Lucia, Belize and Jamaica.
The documentary film, “Partnerships for Resilience – Climate Change and Caribbean Tourism“, is set to be launched at the UN climate change conference in Cancun in early December and will be broadcast in the Caribbean through regional and national TV stations. It was produced and directed by Dr. Owen Day from the NGO, Caribsave.
The emphasis of the film is to highlight opportunities for win-win adaptation strategies, by showcasing success stories linked to climate change in the tourism industry from across the Caribbean region. A detailed examination of coastal management in Barbados and the successful south coast Board Walk, examples of sustainable tourism in Jamaica, and the management of the Pitons area in St Lucia are all featured in the film.
