Main Information
Title Environmental Economics with the UK Overseas Territories in the Caribbean (EEWOC)
Description One of the biggest constraints in the UK Overseas Territories is the lack of quality information and analysis relating to the environmental impacts, values, costs and benefits of alternative development activities and strategies. The Environmental Economics with UK Overseas Territories in the Caribbean Project (EEWOC) aims to help stakeholders to address these problems and to enable stakeholders to generate, understand and apply robust information on the value of ecosystem services in the context of decision-making. In achieving this objective, the anticipated outcome is a better understanding of the causes and costs of biodiversity loss, and identification of more effective, integrated and sustainable approaches to development in the UK Overseas Territories.
