Platform for Training on

Environmental Monitoring

IWEco project in the Caribbean

Environmental monitoring is crucial to protect human health and the environment as the pressure of human activity to the environment increases. Generally, environmental monitoring is the observation and study of the environment (water, air and soil).

In 2020, the GEF-funded UNEP implemented Integrating Water, Land and Ecosystems Management in Caribbean Small Island Developing States Project (IWEco) conducted a regional laboratory assessment with the aim of strengthening national and regional capacity to perform environmental quality monitoring and analyze the data needed to inform the effectiveness of remediation activities in its 10 participating countries. The assessment identified the training needs, the most requested of which are addressed in these training modules developed by UNITAR's Chemicals and Waste Management Programme Unit (CWMPU) and the Water Institute at North Carolina University (UNC). The e-Learning addresses various aspects of environmental monitoring.

The e-Learning materials are provided in form of modules and the training material are presented in PowerPoint, video, quizzes or interactive form. The e-Learning aims to increase the know-how for the laboratories to provide accurate and reliable data, thereby strengthening the capacity of participating countries for effective decision making.
