This compendium of experiences highlights some of the early actions that farmers across the region are implementing with success. While the Caribbean still faces signifcant challenges in achieving sustainable agricultural development under the pressure of a changing climate, these stories reﬂect that there is enough knowledge, innovation and social capital to achieve these goals. The identifcation and evaluation of pilots of climate resilient technologies and practices will help to more quickly boost successful technologies for the beneft of all Caribbean citizens. In sharing these experiences, we recognize and applaud the many actors – and in particular the farmers and organizations supporting them – who are working towards the realization of more resilient agricultural systems that contribute to improving the social, economic, and environmental conditions in local communities.
