Sustainability

In the summer of 2015, Inter-American Development Bank’s (IDB), Emerging and Sustainable Cities Program finalized the publication of “One Bay For All“, a sustainable action plan for the city of Montego Bay. To develop the plan, the IDB employed a multidisciplinary approach to dismantling the main roadblocks to environmental, urban and fiscal sustainability. If enacted, “One Bay For All”, promises to put the city of Montego Bay on a more secure footing, while reducing chief stressors on the park (such as land based sources of pollution).

Since the beginning of the year, the Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology has been forecasting a more or less normal shift from dry season to wet. However, the forecasters note that “A persistent weak La Nina pattern is expected to persist during the upcoming season, which may drive increasing uncertainty into the seasonal rainfall forecast.” Last week a persistent trough of low pressure stretching from the Bahamas to Honduras brought several days of heavy rain that soaked most of the North Coast. The Meteorological Service Division issued flash flood warnings for Portland, St. Ann, St. Mary, Trelawny and St. James. In fact, flooding has been reported across Jamaica in the last few months. From Kingston to Negril, most parishes have had at least one stretch of undermined or washed-out road that needed repairing. Port Maria still hasn’t fully recovered from the drowning it got in February. Power lines went down, buildings collapsed, a landslide took two lives in St. Andrew and there was a near-miss at Sandy Gully.
