Participating Countries: Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada and St. LuciaThis project aimed to reduce the long-term vulnerability of coastal infrastructure in the project countries and in the broader Caribbean region by expanding the capacity for appropriate design, construction and maintenance of coastal infrastructure works, through series of training courses that were designed and implemented under the project. The target audience for the training included public- and private-sector engineers, planners, architects and environmental officials.
Training Courses: Descriptions, Schedules and Materials
The centerpiece of the project was a series of training courses developed and delivered under the project:
- Course 1: Coastal Zone Management
- Course 2: Coastal Defense Systems
- Course 3: Monitoring and Maintenance of Coastal Infrastructure
