The fourth INNOVA project E-zine on Urban Climate Adaptation

Focus theme: Guadeloupe and Martinique - Experimenting to reducing the islands‘ vulnerability to global change

The fourth INNOVA e-zine presents the activities and background of Guadeloupe and Martinique as part of the INNOVA project. These French West-Indies islands (FWI) are investigating solutions to reduce their vulnerability to global climate change. During the last decades, the FWI were subject to many and intense climate impacts on agricultural production.

Innova E-zine4

This e-zine highlights the environmental and climatic challenges related to the agro-ecological transition of predominantly banana and sugar cane production, to more sustainable and locally important crops for Guadeloupe and Martinique. Even so, both these crops are important contributors to the gross domestic product (GDP) of the FWI.

The e-zine was initiated by INNOVA (‘innovation in climate services provision’) project and is funded by the European Research Area for Climate Services(ERA4CS).
