GoLoCarSce Scenario Development Workshop

The GoLoCarSce Project seeks to improve and contribute to the scientific understanding of the effects of Climate Change on the ecological, social, political and economic systems of the small islands of the Caribbean.

In order to properly implement the Project a Scenario Development Workshop will be conducted at the UWI, St. Augustine Campus. Scenario Expert Dr. Eric Kemp-Benedict, from EU-ACP partner institution Stockholm Environmental Institute (SEI), will be co-ordinating and guiding the development of the Scenarios.

The Scenario Workshop is meant to:

  • Introduce influential policy actors (policy makers and influencers) to the project goals and achievements, and
  • Learn from policy actors, stakeholders, and technical experts in order to inform the social, political, and economic aspects of the project scenarios.

As such, several ecosystem services were specifically considered for their direct benefit to Caribbean islands. These ecosystem services are categorised into Consultancies (and designated to technical personnel versed in that particular category), namely Climate Change Modelling, Food Security Modelling/Cocoa Modelling, Forest Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Modelling, Freshwater Availability Modelling, Coastal Vulnerability Modelling, Human Health Modelling and Socio-economic Modelling. Each consultancy has been of the consultancy.
