|LADA methodology presented in the Caribbean region|
A session on LADA methodology and its possible applications in the Caribbean region has been held in Saint Lucia on the 18 and 19 November 2009. The session has been organized in the context of a FAO workshop on financing mechanisms for sustainable land management. The methodology was well received, and strong operational interest was expressed by some participant countries and regional organizations. Further contacts are on-going to explore the possibility of applying the methodology in those countries in the next future.
LADA was presented in its general aspects by Mr. Riccardo Biancalani, technical advisor, who described also the possibilities of application of the methodology in the case of Small Island Countries. Ms. Stella Navone, of the LADA Team Argentina, was also present and illustrated the achievements of the project in Argentina, with a special focus on the results of the local assessment. A representative of CARICOM also attended the event.
