UWI and Missouri State sign MOU on climate impacts

A Memorandum of Understanding between the University of the West Indies and Missouri State University will facilitate research into how climate and other factors affect livelihoods and wellbeing.

The MOU provides a framework to broaden and deepen The UWI’s relationship with MSU, which boasts operating the highest-power university research reactor in the USA.

MSU has also been working for more than a decade in Jamaica in areas such as geology, sustainable tourism, watershed/water quality management, bay bathymetry-coral reef/sea grass mapping, beach erosion-deposition trends and river response to big floods.

This partnership will increase opportunities for engagement and exchange for students and faculty of both institutions.
