Description

There is growing concern about the small number of peer-reviewed journal articles on environment and development issues that are authored by developing-country scientists. To a great extent, this is due lack of training and experience, which creates a large capacity gap.

In an effort to help close this gap, SEI and the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UN/ISDR) are sponsoring a series of ‘writeshops’ for early-career scientists and practitioners who want to build their writing skills and bring their research findings to a global audience.

This event is geared to researchers in the Caribbean. Our local host and partner is the University of the West Indies; the location is the Centre for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (CERMES), on the UWI Cave Hill Campus.  The programme will be conducted in English.
