The cross-cutting reach of climate change impacts has Small Island Developing States have been identified as some of the most vulnerable countries to the impacts of climate change due to inherent environmental, economic, and demographic characteristics. The cross-cutting reach of climate change impacts has led to the conversation of mainstreaming and its practicality. The study uses a qualitative research design that focuses on interviews with senior officials in the Caribbean at the national and regional levels.

The paper proposes several key initiatives and actions needed at a national level that can help the region to achieve adaptation mainstreaming.
