Tarea Vida implementation progresses

With one of the priority areas of attention defined in the country, the Avileño municipality of Morón maintains as a priority the execution of the Cuban State Plan to Confront Climate Change (Tarea Vida), with the aim of reducing vulnerabilities in future scenarios.

Master of Science Zulima Díaz Montes, senior specialist of the Territorial Delegation of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment (Citma), stressed the responsibility they assume in implementing actions to mitigate and adapt to climate change (CC) in the northern cay of Avila, an area with valuable natural resources and importance for the development of tourism.

Among the work carried out during the seven years of Tarea Vida, he highlighted the dumping of sand that favoured the recovery of more than 10 kilometres of beaches distributed among the Guillermo, Coco and Paredón Grande keys; in addition to the execution of a project to rehabilitate coastal dunes in Jardines del Rey.

These actions make important contributions to the preservation of the ecosystem by reducing erosion in coastal areas and the risk of damage in the event of extreme hydro-meteorological events.

Díaz Montes pointed to the project dedicated to restoring the sand mounds, led by the Centre for Environmental Engineering and Biodiversity (Ciba) and as part of which technical actions have been developed such as the planting of native plants and the removal of other invasive exotic plants.

This initiative is also involved in the training of hotel, extra-hotel and tourism support workers, with the aim of providing knowledge for the efficient management of coastal ecosystems and increasing the perception of risks associated with CC.

Citma’s main specialist in the territory of Morón alluded to the strength of the implementation in Jardines del Rey of an international project that promotes sustainable tourism, aimed at integrating the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and CC mitigation in vulnerable marine-coastal areas, through the design and implementation of innovative models with strengthened financial capacities and mechanisms.
