HIT RESET invites applicants to the call for proposals to build a more climate-smart and resilient Caribbean region - application deadline 30 September 2022

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Brussels, 3 August 2022 / OACPS: The Harnessing Innovative Technologies to Support Resilient Settlements on the Coastal Zones of the Caribbean (HIT RESET) project invites applications to its third call for proposals before the application deadline on 30 September 2022. 

Caribbean countries are low greenhouse gas (GHG) producers but are very vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. More than 70% of the Caribbean population lives in the coastal zones and some islands can be considered entirely coastal zones. Much of the settlement is in vulnerable areas due to topography, and effective planning has been limited due to a range of factors (e.g. limited stakeholder engagement, limited resources, limited use of technology for planning).

The HIT RESET project, one of the 12 initiatives financed by the ACP Innovation Fund, aims to enhance the capacity of government entities, coastal development agencies and coastal communities to identify existing vulnerabilities, anticipate impacts, and plan and implement mitigation and adaptation measures, allowing coastal settlements to become more climate-smart and resilient.

The specific project objectives are:

  • Digital and modeling technologies utilized by coastal development agencies and high-level decision-makers in CARIFORUM countries for the prediction of the impacts of Climate Change and natural disasters, and the planning and management of coastal communities;
  • Government entities, coastal development agencies, and coastal communities in CARIFORUM countries developing urban planning policies and/or plans that are conducive to the use of digital and modeling innovations for sustainable coastal development.

HIT RESET is coordinated by The University of the West Indies, Trinidad and Tobago, in partnership with the Anton de Kom University of Suriname (AdeKUS), Suriname and the Caribbean Disaster and Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA), Barbados.

This project has received funding from the European Union under the ACP Innovation Fund, which is part of the OACPS Research and Innovation (R&I) Programme.

Deadline for submission of final proposal and all eligibility documents: 30th September 2022.
