Today, we had the privilege of hosting a Taiwanese Mission, alongside representatives from the Belize Ministry of Economic Development, for a field visit to various sites in Belize City that are susceptible to or already affected by climate change.
These site visits are an essential part of the ongoing Climate and Ocean Risk Vulnerability Index (CORVI) Research Project, a collaborative effort between the
Ministry of Economic Development and the Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan). The CORVI project serves as a critical support tool for decision-makers tasked with making informed climate investments to enhance the resilience and security of coastal cities.
By exploring these vulnerable areas and gathering crucial data, we are taking proactive steps to better understand and address climate-related challenges in Belize City. Through research, cooperation, and innovation, we can make Belize City more resilient in the face of climate change.
