The Community Action, Climate Change and Health Project focuses on the rural coastal communities of the Toco region of Trinidad and Tobago. The Project sought to understand local communities and to report on their perspectives on the impacts of weather and climate changes on their health and livelihoods while providing rich contextual information on their needs and development priorities. The four-part video series highlights the perspectives of Toco groups and community members on their involvement in policy development, their capacity building needs, and their perspectives on community health and livelihoods. This research was supported by the Belmont Forum through the Research Council of Norway and the UK’s Natural Environment Research Council.
