42 FACULTY OF FOOD AND AGRICULTURE Professor of Agricultural Economics Department of Agricultural Economics Extension Tel 868 662 2002 E-mail PROF. CARLISLE PEMBERTON Professor Pembertons research has spanned agricultural produc- tion and marketingparticularly with respect to the cocoa industry but he has also done considerable research in the area of non- market valuation especially with respect to the valuation of wetlands integrated watershed management as well as national and regional agricultural policy. Research on Wetlands Prof. Pemberton led the Economics Group of the Institute of Marine Affairs Team headed by Professor Peter Bacon in 1997-1998 which undertook an Environmental Impact Assessment and the Formulation of a Management Plan for the Nariva Swamp with particular emphasis on Block B that was being used for rice farming. This study involved research which provided the first valuation of all of the services of the natural resources of the Nariva Swamp. The results showed that the social value of the services of Block B of the Swamp exceeded the value of rice farming that had been taking place there. This study was used as the basis for the removal of rice farming from Block B of Nariva Swamp. This work also led to a number of papers and presentations including collaboration with the University of Georgias Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics This work led to further research studies with graduate students in contingent valuation which culminated in a major contribution to the theory of contingent valuation by demonstrat- ing the existence ofand providing an estimate ofcultural bias. Professor Pembertons research has received international recognition and he has been invited to collaborate on projects with a number of international institutions.One such collaboration with Wageningen Universitythe University of Haitithe Ministry of Agriculture of Haiti and CIRAD Martinique led to the CariWatNet Project which was funded by the European Development Fund in 2009 with an overall total budget of 1121811 of which 281789 was allocated to The UWI St. Augustine. Professor Pemberton served as the Trinidad Project Leader. This project sought to establish a network of local and international stakeholders to promote integrated watershed management in the Caribbean including locallydepartments of The University of the West Indies the Water Resources Agency of WASAthe Ministry of Food Produc- tionand other institutional and community stakeholders. Seven students from Wageningen University and one from Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms UnversittBonnGermany spent an average of three months each in Trinidad working on the project. This exposed these students to research on tropical watersheds and they also contributed to the research activity in the project. UWI graduate students also contributed greatly to the research on the project. The project surveyed land use management practices and the hydrology of two watersheds in Trinidad. In addition water sampling was conducted in the project sites to monitor water utiliza- tion and pollution.This data along with further detailed surveys and interactions with the stakeholders led to the formulation of integrated watershed management plans for the Aripo Watershed and the Plum Mitan Rice Scheme in the Nariva Swamp. In the UWI-National Gas Company Research Awards 2014 the CariWatNet Project won the award for the most outstanding International Research Project. Further details on the Project can be obtained from the Project Disaster Assistance and Agricultural Insurance Professor Pemberton assisted the Ministry of Food Production of the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago to devise an improved Disaster Assistance Programme for the Agricultural Sector in Trinidad and Tobago. This research led to the formulation of an integrated farmer registration disaster identification and disaster payment system for the major hazards and farm enterprises types in Trinidad and Tobago. Agricultural Officers throughout the country including Tobago have been trained in the elements of this Programme. Professor Pemberton has also collaborated with the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture in preparing a Research Report on the Development of a Framework for Agricultural Insurance in Trinidad and Tobago. Farm and Home Management An important area of research with regional significance for Profes- sor Pemberton has been in Farm and Home Management. He served as the Farm and Home Management FHM Extension Specialist on the Caribbean Agricultural Extension Projectthe Agricultural Research and Extension Project CAEPAREP of the Department of Agricultural Extension The UWI. Research here led to the conceptualization design and publication of the Farm and Home Management Business Record Book. According to the Final Evaluation Report of AREP this Record Book was successful in its application since an important output of the project was the distribution and use of 4000 record books during the project.By the end of the project 529 farmers were reported to be using the Record Book in the project islands of the OECS. The Record Book made an important impact in Antigua where at the end of
