CATS on TV: What's Happening Now - With Laura

posted on

On October 16th, 2018, the CATS programme took part in the Saint Lucian TV talk show "What's happening now - with Laura". Our CATS colleague Dr. Camille David, expert for coastal and marine systems, discussed with several stakeholders from the Soufriere Watershed in Saint Lucia, how sustainable management and development of a watershed can be achieved. Alongside Dr. David, important partners to the CATS programme were on the show, such as the GEF UNDP Small Grants Programme , IWEco, Fruitage Jeunesse, the Soufriere Marine Management Authority (SMMA), Caribbean Sea and the Piton Management Area (PMA). The group's conversation focused on aspects such as integrated development, ridge-to-reef development, challenges that the watershed and its population faces and the unique attributes of Soufriere watershed. During the discussion, several projects were outlined that start to make a difference in the area and show the advantages and successes of collaborative interventions. The talks have been rounded off with a sampling of successful local entrepreneurship: Fruitage Jeunesse prepared fresh smoothies for the group, using nothing but local ingredients.
