Development Alert!

Jamaicans have greater access to information about infrastructure developments and their environmental impact in the form of Development Alert a new interactive website. 

The Development Alert! website uses an interactive GIS map of Jamaica to provide easy-to-understand information about recently approved or proposed highways, housing projects, hotel developments, energy projects, water abstraction, forest removal, and mining that are likely to have significant health, environmental, social or cultural impacts. The map also shows Jamaica’s protected areas. This information gives citizens and communities the opportunity to influence key decision-making through access to better information.

The Jamaican public can submit reports on projects they are concerned about or track information about new and existing high-impact developments.  Development Alert can also be used to report illegal developments.
