The project Tech4CoastalResilience seeks to apply innovative digital technologies (e.g. GIS and drone technology) using participatory approaches to better engage coastal communities and capture local knowledge for a more in-depth understanding of local vulnerabilities and priorities for climate change adaptation and coastal zone management. It will also help to resource and build the capacity of key management agencies for uptake of digital technologies and participatory tools and integration of local and scientific knowledge to inform policy and practice.

The project Tech4CoastalResilience is funded by HIT RESET Caribbean
