With numerous challenges brought on by climate change, Caribbean countries are facing a dilemma. The region’s premier financial institution, the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), has been partnering with countries in the climate change fight. (IPS News)

The main Mexican tourist destinations on the beach are highly exposed to the effects of climate change due to sea level rise, especially in the Caribbean region, according to studies released here.

Meanwhile in Ensenada, Baja California, drought is the main problem, according to the Mexican report on climate change.

Cancun, Riviera Maya, Cozumel, Majahual, Acapulco, Huatulco, Puerto Chiapas and Ensenada are the most affected areas by floods and landslides resulting from changes in rainfall patterns caused by global warming.

Coastal areas, where coral reefs, mangroves and sandy beaches are located, are ecosystems most likely to be damaged by climate change, the study says.

During the last century the sea elevation was on average 15 centimeters worldwide. In the Gulf of Mexico is expected to increase by 20 centimeters by 2025, warns the report Threatened Extreme Environments: Rocky Shores.
