Environment and Energy

In Belize, we focus on the area of the Environment and Sustainable Development in country programming processes and through various projects. Recent projects have contributed to sustainable land management, research on the Golden Stream Watershed, the mainstreaming into development plans of sound management of chemical (SMC) priorities, and development of various policy documents, including on protected areas. Current environment projects with a climate change and therefore a Crisis Prevention focus are: "Enhancing Belize’s Resilience to Adapt to the Effects of Climate Change"; "Strengthening of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Response Capacity in Belize"; and "Enabling Activities for the Preparation of Belize’s Third National Communication to the UNFCCC".MORE on Crisis Prevention and Recovery
