NASSAU, BAHAMAS – A new environmental project launched this week will address land degradation, food security, and climate resilience challenges.

The workshops for the project for Integrated Landscape Management began this week, as Environment Minister Vaughn Miller set out the goals for the ambitious program.

The project is part of the seventh iteration of funding from the Global Environmental Facility, also known as GEF.

Director of the Department of Environmental Planning and Protection, Dr. Rhianna Neely, explains GEF’s purpose, and the reason the project is working to address so many issues at once.

Seven islands have been selected as targets for this project:

  • Abaco
  • Andros
  • Cat Island
  • Eleuthera
  • Long Island
  • Grand Bahama
  • New Providence.

The four-year program will be the largest GEF project so far, working with over $20 million.
