|Assessing the Experiences of Youth in Climate Resilience in Trinidad and Tobago
Young people have an increasingly strong social and environmental awareness and are key actors in climate action. The Caribbean, Trinidad and Tobago in particular, is extremely vulnerable to climate change and must learn to become resilient to impacts. Integrating young people is a guaranteed way to become more resilient. This study is the first of its kind in the Caribbean and will set a baseline for data on youth engagement
|The role of land use/land cover changes on flooding in Kwakwani watershed- Guyana
Land use and land cover (LULC) changes affects the hydrological cycle and can intensify the impacts of hydrometeorological events such as flooding. Flooding often has disastrous consequences for communities and livelihoods. This justifies the need for spatial and temporal analysis of LULC change. In the Kwakwani watershed in Guyana, the largest impacts from floods were experienced in 2021 and 2022, resulting in losses to crops, livestock, infrastructure, and income.
|Assessing local opinions on the potential for the use of Nature-based Solutions to reduce vulnerability to flooding and improve well-being in urban areas in Trinidad and Tobago
This project assesses the potential for Nature-based Solutions to reduce vulnerability to flooding and improve well-being in urban areas in Trinidad and Tobago. The topic was chosen as flooding is the most prevalent issue within the Caribbean state. This issue is worsened by a variety of environmental and human factors, making it a difficult problem to tackle, however, the implementation of Nature-based Solutions is seen as a key concept that can be implemented to make a difference.
