The present volume captures the results of the studies conducted during Phase 2 of the RECCC
project to date. Chapter 1 provides the contextual framework within which the assessments were
conducted and Chapter 2 focuses on the emissions scenarios as set out by the Special Report on
Emissions Scenarios by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The results of the
economic assessments of the impacts of climate change on the agricultural, coastal and marine, energy
and transportation, health, freshwater resources and tourism sectors in the Caribbean subregion are
presented in Chapters 3 to 9, respectively. The report concludes with an examination of adaptation
strategies and key policy recommendations for policymakers, in Chapter 10.
