Environmental Consultant Dr. Kwame Emmanuel, who is involved in the Developing Design Concepts for Climate Change Resilient Buildings project being implemented by the Institute of Sustainable Development at the University of the West Indies, says climate change adaptation should be viewed as a business opportunity.
Developing Design Concepts for Climate Change Resilient Buildings, which is jointly funded by UWI and the Inter-American Development Bank, will seek to address the development of approaches and policies that will help reduce loss of life and property and enable effective recovery in the aftermath of climate-related disasters in Jamaica and the Caribbean.
He suggests that this and other climate change related projects presents unique opportunities for innovation and job creation. To participate in the study you may complete the Developing Design Concepts for Climate Change Resilient Buildings survey here.
