This study gets preliminary results of how Bahamian residents perceive climate change and

its effects on the nation based on different surveying methods. Most respondents were from

Eleuthera, a more rural island relative to the capital island, Nassau, in The Bahamas. Results

indicate that participants have some familiarity with climate change terminology, the impacts

of climate on the environment and economics. There is also some general understanding of

the role of climate change. More research and data collection would improve this study.
