DE was hired by IICA (Inter Amer­i­can Insti­tute for Coop­er­a­tion on Agri­cul­ture) to cre­ate and deliv­er a three day work­shop on agri­cul­tur­al risk map­ping. The work­shop was bro­ken into three mod­ules each cov­er­ing dif­fer­ent aspects of resilience and dis­as­ter risk analy­sis for agri­cul­ture. The coun­tries that were focused on were: Trinidad and Toba­go and Guyana. DE’s envi­ron­men­tal risk analy­sis and GIS team cre­at­ed the con­tent for the mod­ules and deliv­ered the work­shop.
