IN PICTURES: Merger of art and science helps public understand risk reduction

Satellite art “Natural Mystic” tribute to Robert Nesta Marley

Dr Pablo Suarez and Dr Janot Mendler Suarez in conjunction with UWI Cavehill and a host of talented Barbadian collaborators manage to marry science, art and entertainment into an exceedingly relevant display on the effects of risk and climate change in the Caribbean.

The exhibition was featured as part of the Understanding Risk Conference held from May 27 – May 31 in Barbados.


UR Caribbean was organized by the World Bank’s Caribbean Disaster Risk Management team and the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), in partnership with the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) and the European Union (EU), and hosted by the Government of Barbados. This conference was co-financed by the European Union-funded Africa, Caribbean, Pacific – European Union (ACP-EU) and the Natural Disaster Risk Reduction (NDRR) Program and managed by the GFDRR.

    I am tired of this “climate change” hoax. Quit covering it and maybe they will quit doing it. It is all UN propaganda.

    I’m struggling to find the “art” but I guess my concept of art lacks academic understanding.
