My first week in Trinidad
By Megan Barry
Hi, my name is Megan Barry, and I am working on a master’s in sustainable solutions in the School of Sustainability. I’m focusing on international climate and energy policy, which is why the Trinidad and Tobago trip is such a perfect fit. During this three-week course we are first exploring the potential for wave energy harvesting as a renewable energy source for Trinidad. In one more week we will be traveling to Tobago where we will look at cassava production. Both wave harvesting and cassava production double as tactics that reduce vulnerability to climate change.
