In a TEDxWorthington talk, Professor Mona Webber makes it clear that that rehabilitating coastal ecosystems is one way of building climate resilience for countries like Jamaica. She shares how innovative UWI research on replanting, restoring and protecting mangroves, seagrasses, and coral reefs is helping to achieve this. Hear why a holistic approach to ‘re-greening’ the earth with special attention to our coastal resources is the way to go.
