Did you know that climate-change events are major threats to Jamaica’s agricultural section, which represents 7% of the country’s gross domestic product and employs roughly 18% of the population? Another threat: youth who are leaving family farms for less labor-intensive work. INMED’s Increasing Access to Climate-Smart Agriculture program provides the training, access to financing and links to markets to help smallholder farmers adapt to climate change and attract youth, women and individuals with disabilities into launching aquaponics enterprises. Special thanks to @IDB.org, @CaribbeanDevelopmentBank, @micafjamaica, @megjc.gov, @radajamaica, @wedoagriculture and @inmedcaribbean for supporting this trail-blazing program.
