The Caribbean Science Symposium on Water by the Global Water Partnership-Caribbean (GWP-C), provides an opportunity to bridge the science-policy divide by bringing the two sides together. The theme of the event is “Building Resilience in the Regional Water Sector to Address Climatological and Hydrological Risks and Threats.”
It will bring together representatives from the research, science, development, economic, legislative, and policy communities, practitioners from water and related sectors, young professionals, university students and more, to share and discuss ideas on ongoing scientific studies, initiatives, innovations, and best practices related to enhancing water-secure developments and Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) in the Caribbean.
The event seeks to attract high-quality scientific, research, technical, and exploratory papers that can offer useful insights on key challenges impacting the access, management, utilization, and sustainability of water resources across the region and potential solutions. A key feature will be bringing Science and Policy together, to interrogate science outputs from a policy perspective to enhance policy dialogue across the region and inform adaptation pathways in the water sector. The Symposium will also be part of the ongoing dialogue between key water sector partners in the region and will build upon and complement, existing regional initiatives, and fora.
GWP-C is pleased to have the support of its Caribbean Science Symposium on Water Partners: Caribbean WaterNet (Cap-Net), The Faculty of Food and Agriculture of The University of the West Indies (UWI) St. Augustine Campus, The Global Environment Facility-funded CReW+ Project and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) Caribbean.
