Mayabeque, Cuba_ Mayabeque’s family, mainly from the municipalities of Melena del Sur, San Nicolás, Batabanó and Santa Cruz del Norte, suffers the effects of climate change.

People in these places face the risk of losing their living conditions every day, and many times they have to be evacuated, or leave their homes and move due to the recurrent coastal floods associated with the tides and the passage of tropical storms and hurricanes.

To counteract this situation, the Cuban State implements the Tarea Vida (Life Task).
