Capacity Building in Shoreline Change, Monitoring & Management of Sea & River Defences, Guyana

Georgetown, Guyana

Challenge

The objectives of this project ( for the Government of Guyana and funded by the Caribbean Development Bank) are to:

  • Establish a shoreline change monitoring (SCM) programme, assessing and identifying the most feasible cost-effective methodologies and technological information-system requirements for monitoring, measuring and analysing shoreline movement at scales that are appropriate for planning and design;
  • Facilitate knowledge transfer for optimising policy and operational level decision-making in respects of coastal zone management (CZM).

Solution

The project is also expected to strengthen existing and planned ICZM processes, while scale-appropriately informing future policies, plans, and designs. The overall activities include: technical and financial feasibility of routine SCM; initiation and development of an SCM programme; enhanced capacity development for coastal GIS management for shoreline change monitoring; and capacity strengthening is sea and river defence administration via knowledge building in Guyana.
