The Nature Conservancy, Dominican Republic

1-809-541-7666

TNC globally works at more than 40 demonstration sites worldwide to use nature-based defenses to reduce communities’ risks to storms and protect and restore important coastal areas, engaging the insurance/reinsurance sectors and global banks and lenders to make natural infrastructure part of any coastal development insurance and lending decisions and partnering with engineering firms to include nature in new development designs. In At the Water's Edge project in Grenada, TNC piloted its first hybrid coral reef structure in order to reduce the impacts of wave energy on Grenville beach, thereby allowing the country to restore this area for recreation purposes. In addition, TNC has experience both in the Caribbean and Pacific regions at mangrove and reef restoration to reduce the impacts of climate change.
