The NSUS Project Annual Policy Meeting is an opportunity to involve academics, policy makers and stakeholders in a discussion about strategic priorities related to urban and land management in the Caribbean.
This year’s meeting titled ‘Establishing a Policy and Research Agenda for the Urban Sector in the Caribbean‘, is focused on building an urban agenda for the Caribbean which responds to the most pressing development, infrastructure and institutional challenges in the region.
Two papers have been drafted as part of the activities of this project and will be presented as part of the working sessions throughout this meeting. The first of which, formally a working policy paper titled ‘Towards A Caribbean Urban Agenda’ by; Hebe Verrest, Asad Mohammed and Sarah Moorcroft, explores critical issues in urban and land management and attempts to identify priority themes to direct academic, policy and professional activities in the Caribbean. The second paper, formally a technical working paper titled; ‘Strengthening the Development and Application of Urban Profiling Methodologies: A Review of Urban Profiling in the Caribbean‘ by Asad Mohammed and Dellarue Howard reviews some international urban assessment methodologies and brings forward especially relevant themes, indicators and suggestions for the creation of a Caribbean urban profiling tool.
