Description

This project will build the capacity of an NGO on Union Island which is part of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The project is phase 1 of a two phased project which uses an experiential learning process. The project objectives are to:

  1. strengthen the capacity of the UIEA to undertake conservation and sustainable development projects through participatory approaches;
  2. increase public awareness and build consensus for action in addressing solid waste pollution from yachts; and
  3. improve the management of the marine environment by significantly reducing pollution from yachts.

Project activities will include: the preparation of a baseline study; Strategic Planning; Capacity Development; A Community Clean Up Exercise; and the Preparation of a Marine Management Plan.


Expected Project Outcomes
  1. A strengthened organisation with the capacity to undertake projects in conservation and sustainable development;
  2. A well informed group of stakeholders working together in addressing pollution problems of Union Island; and
  3. Improvement in environmental quality measured by a decrease in solid waste in the environment.
