In these English and Spanish-language videos, Fernando Secaira, Atlantic Coast specialist for Mexico and Northern Latin America, at The Nature Conservancy, discusses a new “climate vulnerability” anaylsis of the Mesoamerican Reef in Central America.
I am part of a team at the Nature Conservancy that is going to undertake a climate vulnerability analysis of the sociological and ecological effects and needs for the region.
It will give us a better understanding how we protect the fisheries along the coast that are more vulnerable to storm surges and sea-level rise. It will also hopefully show us how to adapt to these changes. What people here can do to adapt to these changes? How much support do they need and how can they do certain things for themselves?
Some other things this analysis may tell us is how to implement “no-take” zones so that we can help these fisheries recover from the changing ecosystem. Also, we hope to be able to implement better ways to protect the Mesoamerican Reef from the destruction it has already suffered.
