Its ambition is to pool, co-construct and disseminate approaches to monitoring, coastal risk prevention and adaptation to climate change.
Exposed to extreme cyclonic events and gradual sea-level rise associated with climate change, Caribbean coastlines are subject to hazards such as coastal erosion and marine submersion.
La Richer, Martinique
The associated risks concern above all the safety of property and populations, but also the tourism economy linked to the maintenance of beaches and the natural heritage of these interface environments, rich in biodiversity (mangroves, coral reefs, sea grass).

The CARIB-COAST project benefits from an international partnership including community partners: BRGM, IFREMER, ONF, IRD, CAR-SPAW and CNRS and extra-community partners: UWI, IMA, Ministry of Labour and Transport in Trinidad & Tobago, CARICOOS in Puerto-Rico, MonaGIS in Jamaica and the ACS.
Implementation of a hydrodynamics modelling platform, based on a Caribbean measurement network, for the simulation of current and future hazards.
