The Caribbean small island developing state has been experiencing more frequent and intense hurricanes and rainfall in recent years. A project funded by the Adaptation Fund is restoring canals in Antigua’s northwest coastal McKinnon’s watershed to help vulnerable communities adapt to sea rise, flooding, and stagnant water pools that attract mosquito vectors. The project also empowers low-income residents to climate-proof their homes and establishes community storm shelters.
VR scenes capture a section of the waterway that is being restored to improve drainage and flow. Scenes also depict the Fund’s national implementing partners from around the world sharing experiences and advancing adaptation practices on the ground.
