Tourism-reliant Caribbean destinations heavily damaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria are again accepting leisure visitors while working to rebuild travel and public infrastructure. Yet, because geography ensures the region will unquestionably experience devastating storms in future years, Caribbean nations are also exploring ways to mitigate their impact.

The Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO) is at the forefront of the effort, this week launching a Regional Tourism Education and Awareness Campaign intended to “foster a discussion on climate resilience and sustainability on both the regional and international stage,” said CTO officials.

The campaign will extend through November and feature information and materials from CTO-member destinations broadcast via CTO’s FacebookTwitterInstagram and LinkedIn social media pages. Barbados-based CaribVision Television and the campaign’s official website will also feature campaign information.
