The Song of the Birds Returns to Cuba’s Gulf Coast

With support from the Adaptation Fund and UNDP, a $6 million project is helping communities in Cuba that have been vulnerable to coastal flooding and sea level rise related to climate change recover protective marine ecosystems and forests. Through planting mangroves and fostering their natural regeneration, placing stake lines to reduce sea surges, cleaning canals and promoting coastal forest growth through education and sustainable activities, the project is making a positive difference in reducing vulnerabilities to climate change in the southern Provinces of Artemisa and Mayabeque on Cuba’s western Gulf of Batabanó.
