USVI Climate Change Specific Information

Coastal Zone Impacts

Scales of climate change

Global climate change includes carbon emissions and carbon uptake, melting ice, thermal sea expansion, and more.

Regional climate change is particularly relevant to the small islands of the Caribbean, which are vulnerable because of small populations, limited economy, geographic isolation and limited supply chain and dependence on coastal zone ecosystem services.
