Project Background
The 2016 Conflict, Stability & Security Fund (CSSF) funded programme of work, ‘Enhancing economic security through environmental resilience’ in the UK Overseas Territories (OTs) (Caribbean Territories of Anguilla, British Virgin Islands, Montserrat and Turks and Caicos Islands and the South Atlantic Territories of Falkland Islands, St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha) aimed to improve the long-term economic planning to support growth and development.
JNCC has used CSSF support, and funding from other sources, to implement a suite of projects to map and value the natural assets of partner OTs by integrating satellite data, Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and economic assessments of the priority environmental goods and services (derived from natural capital). In the Caribbean, a GIS based model was developed to assess the vulnerability to storm surge and flooding events and their impacts on infrastructure and human life.
This work aimed to support the OTs in developing plans, policies, and procedures to deal with natural disasters by enhancing their ability to prepare for / recover from the impact of storm events with a particular focus on the functional significance and economic value of the natural environment in mitigating inshore and coastal zone flooding.
Since the inception of this work in 2016, JNCC has worked with the Caribbean/Western Atlantic Overseas Territories of Anguilla, British Virgin Islands, Cayman, Turks and Caicos and Montserrat. See https://jncc.gov.uk/our-work/natural-capital-in-the-overseas-territories/ for reports on work to date.
