Conservation Strategy Fund - Technical Study - Economic comparison of alternatives to building a port on Goat Islands
The Conservation Strategy Fund (CSF), announced the findings of a cost-effectiveness assessment of four potential sites for the proposed transshipment port that China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) is proposing to build. CSF’s recommendations were presented to a group of senior decision-makers at a meeting in Octorber 2014 at the Courtleigh Hotel in Kingston, Jamaica.
An international study shows there may be better, cheaper and less environmentally damaging alternative sites for the proposed transshipment port and logistics hub.
The Caribbean Coastal Area Management (C-CAM) Foundation has been participating in the annual International Coastal Cleanup activities organized across Jamaica for many years. This day has been used as an opportunity for thousands of volunteers across the world to clean up our beaches and most importantly to continue the public education efforts about proper waste disposal and recycling.
