Can Caribbean Environmental History Teach Us Anything About Resilience?
The Caribbean has undergone serious social, environmental and economic changes since the advent of colonization. What kind of society, consumption patterns, political organization or economic model should be adopted to build a more sustainable future in the Caribbean? History shows that today’s situation is not a consequence of a linear evolution, however; we can take lessons from the environmental history of this region that give us hope for more affordable alternatives to the regional patterns and their heavy social and environmental costs through the ages.
