As the prime minister and presidents of the region assemble in New York for the annual meeting of the United Nations General Assembly, CHTA President Karolin Troubetzkoy said: “We must continue to let the world know how parts of the Caribbean are beginning to be devastated by the effects of climate change and the urgent need to strengthen our resilience to such assaults.”

 
Along with Frank Comito, CHTA’s Director General and CEO, Troubetzkoy explained that constant understanding for the adversity following the ravages of Hurricanes Irma and Maria and requested everyone associated with the projected path of Maria to take stern safety measures. The tourism officials are interested to see joint effort to bring instant help, requesting on regional organizations, governments, multilateral organizations and relief organizations to follow an even more synchronized attempt in responding to the regional requirements of the people after these devastating weather events.

 
While talking about the effect of Hurricanes Irma and Maria on some of the islands in the Lesser Antilles, Puerto Rico and now the eastern part of the Dominican Republic, the CHTA President noted that “these are the very real consequences of humankind’s inattention to climate changing excesses and it’s time for the industrialized wealthier countries, which are major contributors to climate change, to recognize the need to help the region to strengthen our defenses against future disasters, including not only hurricanes but extreme weather events which bring flooding and landslides.”
