CoralCarib aims to use advanced strategies to improve marine biodiversity in priority coral reef ecosystems in Cuba, Dominican Republic, Haiti and Jamaica

Through project interventions, healthier and more resilient reefs will provide socio-economic benefits to people living in the coastal zones in these four countries. Project activities are designed to protect, restore, and sustainably use coral reefs with high potential to survive future climate impacts, using a pioneering new modeling approach to identify and prioritize coral climate refugia sites.
