A phrase that is becoming quite a cliché these days is: “The Caribbean is on the front lines of the climate crisis.” What this really means is that, very often, our small nations have to do the heavy lifting. Are we armed and ready for the battle on those front lines? And before we get that far, do we really understand what we are up against?
