VOICES OF TOCO: Community Action, Climate Change, and Health Project

December 10th, 2022

The Community Action, Climate Change and Health Project focuses on the rural coastal communities of the Toco region of Trinidad and Tobago. It 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.

Michelle Scobie, Principal Investigator for the Toco section of the project, edited and produced the following video series for the project:

The video series highlight 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.
