Description

Caribbean countries share similar economic and sustainable development challenges, including a small population, remoteness, susceptibility to natural disasters, and most importantly, vulnerability to climate change. Given the current condition of the marine environment, most coastal areas have few defences against the raging surfs of hurricanes and tropical storms, and the likely consequences would be significant coastal damage including beach erosion and infrastructure damage. Negative impacts associated to climate change on land, water resources and biodiversity have also been predicted, and ultimately, tourism and agriculture will be negatively impacted by these changes.

Some of the duties and responsibilities are, among others:

  • On site drain- clearance and repair/ installation;
  • Dam repair;
  • Provide supervision of ongoing civil works;
  • Preparation of fortnightly monitoring and supervisor reports;
  • Identify technical support required for validation processed.
