Bridging Landscape-Seascape Connectivity between and within Vulnerable Urban Communities in Belize City and the Marine Environment as a Mechanism for Building Urban Resilience to Climate Change.
Bridging Landscape-Seascape Connectivity between and within Vulnerable Urban Communities in Belize City and the Marine Environment as a Mechanism for Building Urban Resilience to Climate Change.
This project seeks firstly, to identify the exposure and the connectivity between urban systems and actors and the marine environment to climate hazards; Secondly, to strengthen the characteristics and connectivity of such systems and actors between themselves and with the marine environment, to reduce their vulnerability to climate change by building capacities of actors to access the systems and to develop adaptive responses that strengthens the landscape/seascape conservation; and Finally, to address the institutions that constrain effective responses to system fragility or undermine the ability to build people’s capacity and subsequent resiliency.

Project Characteristics and Results
Replication of project activities
As a fairly novel project there were hardly documented experiences to draw from within the region. As such, the pioneering of a project design can serve as a strength. This means that BAP would blaze a new trail and can draw lessons for replication of the project.
Inovative Financial Mechanisms
Generally, knowledge management is planned to be executed throughout the project tenure at specific milestones and for particular purposes. Specifically, knowledge sharing of the scope, expectations and progress of the project will occur through orientation sessions, information sharing of community profile and findings of observations and perceptions surveys with the community (pamphlets); Through media, community and stakeholder engagements to report on milestone achievements via project update blasts, imagery and video clips of community experiences and perceptions of the project, all to be uploaded and shared on a digital portal to be installed on www.belizeplanners.org and on www.facebook.com/Belize-Association-Of-Planners; and a Final project report on lessons learned and experiences shared.
