Fostering developed-developing country partnerships for the advancement of global volcano science
Co-convened by The University of the West Indies Seismic Research Centre and the IAVCEI – Developing Nations Network*
4 - 7 June 2019 at the University of the West Indies, Saint Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago

Senior volcano scientists representing 22 countries from around the world will come together at The University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus (Trinidad) on 4-7 June 2019 to discuss the challenges and opportunities for undertaking volcanology research, monitoring and risk mitigation in a resource-constrained context. The workshop will discuss how volcano science could be advanced as a result of fostering country partnerships through the establishment of a new community-driven network that focuses on supporting volcano scientists from Lower-to Middle-Income Countries (LMIC’s). Feedback from the workshop and the accompanying survey will channel directly into the establishment and the functioning of the network under IAVCEI  to ensure that it meets the needs of the community.

We will report on this workshop during the upcoming IUGG General Assembly in Montreal, Canada, during an informal meeting on 15th July 2019 at 3-5 pm, room 523B. Anyone attending IUGG is welcome to join this information session.

The workshop is funded by IAVCEI, IUGG, The University of the West Indies, USAID and Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

constrained context. For more information on the network, survey or
