A description of the Workshop:

Scenes from the Global Water Partnership-Caribbean‘s (GWP-C’s) first ever Media and Youth Workshop on Water Security and Climate Resilience on December 18th and 19th, 2014.The workshop aimed to provide Caribbean media and communication practitioners and active members of environmental youth organisations such as the Caribbean Youth Environment Network (CYEN) and Caribbean Student Environmental Alliance (SEA) with relevant information and training on Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) and Climate Resilience.GWP-C recognises the critical importance of the role of Caribbean media and communication practitioners in advocating and building awareness on key development issues such as water security and its relationship with climate resilience. Also important to the GWP-C is encouraging and supporting young people and youth organisations to be fully active and engaged in learning and sharing knowledge on water and climate change issues.A key objective of the workshop is to also increase dialogue and knowledge exchange between media and communication practitioners and youth groups working on climate and water issues in the Caribbean.Special thanks to our partner, the Fondes Amandes Community Reforestation Project (FACRP) who collaborated with us to facilitate the field trip component of the workshop.

The workshop was executed under the GWP-C’s Water, Climate and Development Programme (WACDEP).
