Barbados recently received praise from the Small Island Developing States for the countryâ's efforts towards climate change mitigation.1 The United Nations has stated that Barbados has made exemplary efforts towards climate change adaptation and the protection of the nationâ's natural biodiversity.2 The island was also chosen to play host to the United Nationâ's World Environment Day.3 This honor was viewed as a celebration of all that Barbados has done to use clean renewable energy throughout the nation, as well as its efforts towards climate change adaptations.4 Climate change in Barbados has caused a rise in sea level and saline intrusion, which could affect the availability of the countryâ's water supply in the future.5 Additionally, the high climate variability in Barbados has been linked to an ...See More increase in dengue fever.6 Show Less
