Academia: A Voice for Advocacy
Universities have become central to the global development agenda.
Science and research make direct contributions to policies and decisions, which have an immediate impact on lives, jobs and well being.
Harnessing our regional and global networks of knowledge, skills, innovation and entrepreneurship to uplift the communities, The UWI is an activist for climate change.
Our scientists recognised decades ago that climate change, rising sea levels and ocean temperatures would prove to be an existential threat to small island states in the Caribbean and across the globe.
