Cuba’s Life Task: combatting climate change
New documentary screening: Cuba’s Life Task: combatting climate change
As a small Caribbean island, Cuba is disproportionately affected by climate change through extreme weather events and rising sea levels. This documentary shows how Cuba is using environmental science, natural solutions and community participation in its 100-year state plan for adaptation and mitigation, known as ‘Tarea Vida’ (Life Task). The documentary will be introduced by a Cuban environmentalist who will be in Glasgow for COP26.
