AS THE ISLAND gets set to host World Environment Day tomorrow, stakeholders, visiting regional officials and representatives from United Nations bodies ventured underwater or along the West Coast to see how the island was coping with climate change.
The event was a Climate Adaptation in Small Island Developing States: West Coast  Boat Tour and Atlantis Submarine Dive yesterday.
Director of the Coastal Zone Management Unit (CZMU),  Dr Lorna Inniss, speaking after  the tour, said issues like coastal erosion, coastal development, coastal stabilisation, coral reef bleaching and damage, the lionfish invasion as well as others, which were all showcased yesterday,  were issues the CZMU dealt with  on a daily basis.
Dr Inniss revealed coastal management areas were not just limited to the sea, but included  land areas as well.
