The State Plan for Confronting Climate Change known as ‘Tarea Vida’ was approved four years ago, with concrete actions being carried out in the care of nature.
Environmental issues transcended scientific circles to become a priority of the Cuban government.
This is not a new matter, since the 1990s the variation of temperatures, rainfall, periods of droughts and the increase in sea level have been under research.
Data backed by scientific studies confirm that the climate in Cuba is getting warmer; there is a variability in cyclonic activity, with intense hurricanes and floods representing a danger to natural and built heritage near the coasts.
All the knowledge acquired over the years allowed the government to approve on April 25th, 2017 the State Plan for Confronting Climate Change known as ‘Tarea Vida’.
The environmental issue has become prominent in all areas in Cuba, with short-, medium- and long-term policies established, and although the country is now fighting the Covid-19 pandemic, actions on this front continue.
