University of the West Indies (BARBADOS)
The University of the West Indies (UWI) is the largest and longest standing higher education provider in the English-speaking Caribbean. It is an internationally accredited institution with five campuses: Mona in Jamaica, St. Augustine in Trinidad and Tobago, Cave Hill in Barbados, Open Campus with sites throughout the Caribbean region, and Five Islands in Antigua and Barbuda. The Cave Hill Campus is home to centers of excellence in numerous fields, including the Centre for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (CERMES). Established in 1986, CERMES was a response to the Caribbean’s need for a multidisciplinary program that incorporated environmental issues into sustainable development. CERMES offers a Master’s program in Natural Resource and Environmental Management, in three specialization areas: Climate Change, Water Resources Management, and Coastal and Marine Resource Management which includes a course dedicated to sustainable tourism. As part of the STOREM Project, CERMES is updating the existing Sustainable Tourism in the Coastal Zone course, as well as adding a new course in Tourism and Hazard Mitigation. UWI-CERMES also leads the project’s Work Package on the development of new curricula along the STOREM pathway.
