ALST 358 - Ecosystems, Environmental Threats, and response in Trinidad and Tobago (Study Group)
Caribbean environmental issues and concerns are usually overshadowed by the images of sea and sun, yet the region, which is composed of a multiplicity of countries, face both individual and common environmental threats. Trinidad and Tobago provide a unique perspective on the Caribbean given its cultural cosmopolitan richness and its label as the most industrialized. Students seek to understand the main ecosystems, environmental threats, and the ways in which the country has responded to these threats. While studying in Trinidad and Tobago students get hands-on experience with these ecosystems and threats in addition to learning from a number of stakeholders – NGOs, community-based organizations, and government – to understand the complexity of responses for small island states.
