Hugh Sealy

Principal investigator, Marine coastal ecosystems biodiversity, functions and services in a changing environment, Nature-based solutions to climate change adaptation and mitigation

Hugh is a Lecturer at the University of the West Indies. His research interests are water resources management, waste management, reduction of land-based sources of marine pollution in small island developing states
Within the project, he will contribute to work packages 1 & 3 of the project. The focus of the university will be on the marine coastal ecosystems, primarily coral reefs, along the West and South coasts of Barbados, recognising the vital services that they provide. The objective of his team is to identify viable and effective nature-based solutions to preserve and enhance these ecosystems.
His hope is that MaCoBioS will help to provide some of the tools to save Barbados' most valuable physical economic asset- its coral reefs.
