Dominica has been shortlisted by National Geographic on its ‘Best of the World’ 2021 travel List. The publication listed the Nature Island’s leafy forests, powerful volcanos, 365 rivers, black sand beaches, mountain waterfall, Boiling Lake, where temperatures near 200°F (93.3°C) as ideal reasons for its readers to visit.
National Geographic also praises Dominica for its climate change policies. They remarked that warm temperatures supercharged Hurricane Maria in September 2017 and caused destructive landslides that gravely damaged nearly each construction on the island of 73,000.
“Though post-hurricane, nature bounced, residents rebuilt, and the government solved to make Dominica the world’s first climate-resilient nation,” stated the publication about Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit’s target. “It needs not only hurricane-proof structures but also a diverse economy, including a tourism area that draws more high-end spenders and an agricultural system that grows a diversity of fruits and vegetables eaten regionally. Adventure tourism plays an enormous role in the climate resiliency push by creating jobs and an economic incentive to restore and shield Dominica’s greatest natural resource—its wild side.”
