Participatory data generation: stunning results from the P3DM exercise in Tobago reports Adam Jehu

Adam Jehu, Remote sensing officer at the Institute of Marine Affairs in Chaguaramas, Trinidad and Tobago provides his feedback on his participation in the participatory 3 dimensional modeling (P3DM) exercise of Tobago Island.

"A total of 87 layers of information have been generated in one week. This would be impossible with any traditional means of information gathering ..." stated Adam in his interview.

The P3DM process has been carried out in the framework of the Project "Promoting participatory ICTs for adding value to traditional knowledge in climate change adaptation, advocacy and policy processes in the Caribbean"

Project Implementation has been ensured by the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) and the University of the West Indies (UWI) with financial and technical support provided by the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation ACP-EU (CTA) and the Global Environment Facility - Small Grants Programme (GEF-SGP).

Additional support has been granted by the Tobago House of Assembly and The Nature Conservancy (TNC).
